The sections on American private life are redundant and predictable-but the rest of the book is fascinating. This must just be because I know the rather stitled history of the country in which I reside, but I was hoping to glean something new.

I really liked the style of this. The creative-take with the dog shouldn't be seen as anything but what it is, a brilliant representation of a lonely woman slowly losing her mind. I don't think this book should be marketed to "dog-lovers" because tha...more

“I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind's door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.”

Butterfly Scars (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 10, 2013 11:30AM
Description: "People who haven’t been where we have been truly have no idea what we live with. Some of us are constantly torn between trying to protect and heal ourselves and trying to have some sort of relationship with our families, however dysfunctional they may be. Others have decided that they no longer want a relationship with the ill family member. Many of us have been subjected to a lifetime of emotional, verbal, physical, and sometimes sexual abuse. These abuses do not disappear just because time has passed or because we are adults. Sometimes the worst scars cannot be seen." Excerpt from http://outofthefog.net/Relationships/Unchosen.html
