I find this book to be profoundly honest without being overwrought; I appreciate the author's approach to understanding her mother, and I feel like I learned another shade of empathy.
Exquisite. Beautifully rendered. I bought it because I know it's one I'll re-read over and over.
It was interesting but not riveting. I had trouble getting through it and had to take a couple of breaks and read something else. Finally got through it.
I had a hard time getting through this book and in fact put it down while I read another. When the author is writing about her mother it is very interesting however she ventures off into other areas of her own life that are not very interesting.
If you have ever dealt closely with someone who suffers from a mental illness then you can relate. This is the area of the book that is interesting.
Anyone with loved ones who suffer from mental illness will identify with this story.
With insight, discovery and irony, the author shares her experience of living with (and away) from her schizophrenic mom from the time of her childhood to present day.
Beautifully written and hard to put down.
