HEART BERRIES

Terese Marie Mailhot. HEART BERRIES: A Memoir. Doubleday, Canada, 2018.

December 15, 2018. I read this memoir a second time, as the writing is so dense, like poetry, with every word and phrase needing to be attended to. Very brave. And complicated. The dual and triple diagnoses, with mental illness complicated by racism and obsession. Anxiety-producing in that the reader worries/hopes the writer is well now. 

I was watching more closely this time for the subtle cultural references of Little Mountain Woman who goes to the river and the desert.
