A lyrical look at a healing soul

"Do you know what it means to have a wound that never heals?"
Trigger: child abuse and domestic trauma

Natasha Trethewey. 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry winner, has written a beautifully personal look back on her life as the mixed race child of miscegenation and stresses that brought on her and her parents. At times, extremely uncomfortable, it has the personal touch that makes it unforgettable.

I loved this book! I read it in one day! It is a lyrical take on a very ugly part of our world: Childhood Trauma. The only drawback was the last section with the transcript which I didnâ??t think was really necessary even if it does â?"close the loop". I am sure it will remain on my shelf and I will recommend it for a long time. Highly Recommended 5/5
