Wise, evocative, and rich in insight, this compassionate and beautiful memoir is ultimately an act of love.
She loves me, she loves me not. I love her, I love her not. Elissa Altman uses her wit, heart, moxie, and everything she has ever learned, to both love and free herself from an impossible, never-say-die mother. She does it with scintillating, unsparing prose.
Honor to them both. Beautifully written, infused with humor, sorrow, and hard-won clarity, this memoir is a triumph of writerly and daughterly empathy.
The ending moved me to tears. The resulting story, of a mother most bedeviling and a daughter doing everything she can to save herself without losing her oldest tie, is a triumph of sensitivity and a truly compelling read.https://cuedlelwedra.tk
