Grandmotherland looks back to the past and forward to the future, while being rooted in the reality of the modern grandmother's life. In this book, there are stories of the 'good' or good-enough granny, the 'bad' granny, and all those in between, as well as those of women who decided to be agents of transmission in other ways than passing on their DNA.
