Some Mothers Don't Come In Pastel

By Mary Esther Frederick
Austin Book Award, 1993


These poems cross borders of the heart, land and soul. They celebrate family, culture and passion. They are intense, well-crafted and native to the American soul. She celebrates the colors, noise, and clutter of her Mexican mother and chides the flamboyant power of her Texan father (whom the boys were afraid of). Her poems are full of children playing at home in Texas, while the artist in her was leaping into everything from passion to plastic jewelry to brightly colored paintings.
