"Mama What's Cookin?"
Collection of Short Stories on Motherhood
Mama What’s Cookin' recall the stories of a young girl experiencing the superwoman that she perceives her mother with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is, while the rest of the world sees a disability. The short stories highlight the specific depictions of motherhood that was successfully carried from a physically-disabled mother to her daughter. Each story unpacks the intersection of societal norms, media perception on ability status, cultural norms, and social vulnerability to confront the ongoing challenging experiences of having a disabled parent. It is fun, heartwarming, nurturing, and open on the authentic and poetic experiences in reminding the entire world (and herself) of the ability in her mama’s disability.
