The Body Where I Was Born
A NovelBook - 2015
"From a psychoanalyst's couch, the narrator looks back on her bizarre childhood--in which she was born with a birth defect into a family intent on fixing it--having somehow survived the emotional havoc she went through. And survive she did, but not unscathed. This intimate narrative echoes the voice of the narrator's younger self: a sharp, sensitive girl who is keen to life's gifts and hardships. With bare language and smart humor, both delicate and unafraid, the narrator strings a strand of touching stories together in a portrait of an unconventional childhood that crushed her, scarred her, mended her, tore her apart and ultimately made her whole."--
