Lesbian comedian and author Judy Gold stops at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse tonight to pitch her new book, “25 Questions for a Jewish Mother.”
Gold is conservative, kosher, gay and the mother of two sons, ages 7 and 12. Her art is both reaction and tribute to her 86-year-old mom, Ruth. We caught up with the younger Gold as she rolled into town the other day and talked about, what else —- how she has unwittingly become her mother.
In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Gold talks about her mother, her promise not to become her and how she emulates her.
Q. What did you promise yourself you’d never do to your kids to avoid being like your mother?
A. I’m never going to make them feel guilty. I’m not going to yell at them.
Q. And which of her traits do you emulate anyway?
A. Pretty much everything. It’s incredible. You have the kid and you turn into your mother. It’s unavoidable. Sometimes my older son calls me Grandma. I’m a cooler version of my mother.
