A Mother’s Love: An Interview with Martha Wainwright
In November 2009, Martha Wainwright gave birth to her first child in London. After a difficult and life-threatening labour, her son spent the first few weeks of life in an incubator. At the same time, 3,000 miles away in Montreal, Wainwright’s mother, the acclaimed folk singer Kate McGarrigle, battled against the sarcoma which ravaged her body. Kate died in January 2010.
