“Parents were the only ones obligated to love you; from the rest of the world you had to earn it.” —Ann Brashares
But is familial love ever as straight-forward as we hope? What happens when a lie changes the entire family (Atonement by Ian McEwan); your child becomes a mass murderer (We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver); a mother is unable to love her child after the loss of another (Ordinary People by Judith Guest)?
In this session of Deep Cut, come have a conversation with author (and proud mother of 2!) Jinny Koh and moderator Wong Shu Yun on the complexities of parent-child dynamics and the expectations of unconditional familial love through books and personal experiences.
