Read full description of the books:
I thought I left the star rating here blank and I think it should remain blank but I guess I put four stars there for some reason so I guess I'll keep it for now. It makes no sense for me to give a book like this a rating. Not because it's bad or good or immeasurable, but because it's about a friend, because it's true, and how do you quantify a friend's life? How do you even begin to try, and, if you do try, what purpose could that serve?
Praise of Motherhood is dark and beautiful and tragic because what else is a book about depression, psychosis, and the death of a mother meant to be about?
This is a book of true emotion and it's gripping. Sometimes even a little playful but always pulling you into Phil Jourdan. Into his heart, to his thoughts, but even as he opens up to us, he keeps us at bay, let's us know this isn't meant for us. His pain is not a show and his mother is not quantified by words and pages.
This book made me really uncomfortable. This book made a home for me. This book kicked me in the teeth. This book wasn't meant for me. This book was meant only for me.
I loved this book but love isn't the right word.
I hated this book but hate isn't the right word.
I'm not someone who reads memoirs or autobiographies, or even biographies for that matter but I'm glad I read this. I may read it again one day but I'm afraid to.
For such a small book, it carries great weight and it may just change you.
Read this book, even when it hurts, because it will.
