Writing a journal is an intensely personal act, an exercise in which one’s most private thoughts and painful experiences can be set forth through an act of deliberate self-examination. So when a writer of Theroux’s stature chooses to share such introspective feelings with the world, readers are afforded an unparalleled opportunity to observe how such crystalline powers of observation are developed and nurtured. Friendships, finances, homes, health: all have gloriously embraced her or just as unceremoniously abandoned her. Through it all, however, one constant remained: Theroux’s steadfast devotion to recording her emotions and impressions in journals, which proved to be a haven where she could reflect upon and retreat from life’s challenges in order to discover paths of clarity and purpose. A subtle and sympathetic witness, Theroux is an equally ardent proponent of meeting confrontations head-on. Editing more than six years of her personal reflections, Theroux goes public in this elegiac memoir of love and loss, an elegant tribute to the resiliency of human nature. --Carol Haggas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I really enjoyed reading this book a lot. It is very spiritual but not in a holy roller religious way. The author writes some very thought provoking and lovely things.Published 17 months ago by Yellow Rose
