Book of My Mother
1978 French edition (publ. Editions folio)
|Original title||Le Livre de ma mère|
|Cover artist||Mary Cassatt|
Published in English
The book was reviewed in Publishers Weekly in 1998: "In this intensely public forum, Cohen seems to be coming to grips with his mother's death through all the typical stages of mourning--numbness, denial, anger, guilt--with pen in hand. Although this process is not without its bouts of melodrama ('O Maman, my youth that is no more!'), other outbursts powerfully reflect a disgust with mortality and a baffled sense of abandonment. ... This is a heartbreaking little volume, worth reading twice."
