    Emily Rappaport

    A genuinely brilliant memoir that I can't wait to re-read and keep learning from. This book was ahead of its timeā€”if Bergman wrote it now, I wonder if it might win a National Book Award instead of being out of print. Bergman's reflections on grief, sexuality, and the way that families are (often unwitting) keepers of each other's secrets and solitude are breathtaking. Not an easy read but well worth the time.
