Karen von Hahn, style columnist for the Toronto Star, has released a memoir about her relationship with her stylish and grandiose mother, Susan.

 

 What Remains is a poignant, funny, and heartwarming tale of growing up in 1970s and 1980s Toronto in the fabulousness of a bourgeois Jew-“ish" family that valued panache over pragmatism, and design statements over substance. She describes the misunderstandings and sometimes hurt and pain that come with being raised by a woman who in many ways embodied the flash-and-glam, high-flying, wealth-accumulating generation that gave birth to our modern-day material culture.
