Description
Among the plethora of recent psychological memoirs, Berger's stands out by virtue of its focus, a physical disability that requires the poet to literally see the world horizontally. The story moves from the point when Berger bends down to pick up her child and finds she cannot stand up anymore, advancing through years of physical and psychic adjustment that demand she reevaluate, literally, her position as mother, wife, writer, and participant in a world that values mobility and health above compassion. The writing is particularly beautiful, imbued with poetic insight and vision. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
