I enjoyed this the most when about halfway through I started reading it out loud, which made me appreciate the language, especially the call and response parts, all the more. Parts were also reminiscent of my favorite Virgina Woolf story "Kew Gardens" which I had also recently been reading. Although Gaudry's book is in verse, I think Woolf is an apt comparision.

In We Take Me Apart, a novella in verse, Molly Gaudry tells an old story in a new way. It’s about mothers and daughters and kitchens. It’s about cooking and cleaning. It’s about home —— leaving and staying. It’s about stitching and unstitching (to borrow a phrase from Yeats). The voice and form are utterly unique. The images are quickly rendered in precise language.

Listen to Molly read from We Take Me Apart at Apostrophe Cast: (http://www.apostrophecast.com/authors...)

"Story-wise, WTMA contains three characters: the protagonist daughter, her mother, & the daughter’s significant other. Though much of the book is in first person, it shifts to second when referring to the daughter’s love interest. Successful, too, is Gaudry’s adept use of voice, which changes as the main character grows older...."

Read the rest in the December 2009 issue of decomP .

I loved this amazingly dense little book. Spooky at times in it's haunting domestic details. Sexy, too. This one sticks with you for a long time.
