Does each generation necessarily stand on its own, divided from all others by a gap in perspective and understanding? Is meaningful communication between generations an impossibility? Mind the Gap puts this notion to the test in a unique mother-son literary collaboration. By challenging each other to write with openness and honesty on a series of random topics chosen for them, the authors discover far more commonality than conflict in their positions on deeply personal, yet universally relevant, matters of love, life and learning. Even where their views diverge, they celebrate their differences with the same humour, humility and respect as their similarities. Their individual voices are both intelligent and engaging, but offer vastly different approaches to each topic, making every piece a fresh and surprising read. And as mother and son, the relationship underlying their words is inspiring. Together they show readers that mutual respect can bridge any perceived generational (or other) divide. It is a timely message that will resonate with any age or generation.
