THE OTHER MOTHER, a 416-page hardcover "e;rememoir,"e; is the true story of a TV reporter and the deep bond she forges with a woman four times her age, a bond that changes her life forever...
Byrne and Duncan Miller do not blend into the beautiful background that is Beaufort, South Carolina. She is an 82-year-old modern dance pioneer from Manhattan who started out on the burlesque stage during the Great Depression. He is a pipe-smoking, frustrated novelist and one of the original Mad Men of Madison Avenue.
The author stumbles onto the story of their love and quickly becomes one of Byrnes "e;collected daughters."e; Their friendship is a dance between love and madness, loyalty and truth, and speaks to anyone who has ever needed and cherished the love of an "e;Other Mother."e;
Bruce shares the wisdom of Byrnes life through cheeky quotes called "e;Womenisms,"e; such as, "e;Every woman should have at least one affair. It builds confidence."e;
