I m nearing the 75 mark for memoirs read Since I m writing my own I m trying to read as many as possible to study form language characterization setting tone etc I have read about 10 that are stellar and what I like about them most is that they are lyrical rather than literal they are reflective instead of judgmental they are embodied rather than summarized So the problems I had with this particular memoir were many and various First I don t like the organization by topic It feels forced and it makes it feel like the Bonnard study was tacked on to the beginning and the end Next there were full chapters that read like a list of complaints We all have familial complaints but they sure are interesting when embodied than when listed Finally it feels like the first chapter was the most carefully crafted and that the energy was lost after that I made several notes in the first chapter and not in subseuent ones since the language became flat with lots of sentences like I was entirely happy or She did not die well Here are some lines that resonated for me in chapter 1My mother has erased me from the book of the living Toothless no woman can be considered beautifulYou weren t tempted by all that ardor

Public library copy I was looking for something light to read ha This is not light reading I read it uickly because that is what I do when I m not comfortable with what I m reading Some people don t finish the book I read it uickly Let me tell you whyMy mother lived until just shy of her ninety fourth birthday and like the author s mother she lived with the insidiousness of dementia for the last decade of her life although not in the nursing home that long I am like the author the only child of my mother There were similarities and I am coming to terms with her death so I thought it would be good to read of another s like experiencesAnd in that sense the book was very good for me I racked with sobs at one point but only one The book did what I wanted it to in giving me an outlet by which to let go of my mother to a greater degree and let go of my guilt Beyond that I have nothing in common with the author and could not relate to much of what she wrote She has a gift with language in a different way than I am used to reading But what bothered me most is the absence of faith and hope in God on the part of the author It grieves me that her father was born Jewish and converted to the Roman Catholic church that her mother was wholly devoted to the Roman Catholic church and none of this seemed to have an effect on the authorIt is difficult to read such strong language in reference to one s own mother and family the author uses the term hate The concept of forgiveness is absent The author deems that one can punish the dead by holding onto one s hatred of what was done in the past Perhaps this is just for the benefit of the writing I would not be functional in the present were I to hold onto the past this wayI learned from the book I learned about life in New York about Catholic immigrant families in America about Catholic life in the last century in America I can t say that I was endeared to them or to life in the city I have a great appreciation for the fact that my mother and her immigrant family didn t teach me to hate but instead taught me the personal love of God my Creator and Redeemer I am thankful that I know my mother is in heaven that I will one day see her againI cannot honestly recommend this book There is not surprisingly a good bit of language in it in addition to the other reasons mentioned It gave me much to think about in how to portray my own mother in memoir
