"I need to touch her, on the shoulder first, with a fast recoil. Then over her heart, a few seconds longer. There is no difference between one spot and another. She feels like cement, all the softness sucked out of her. And she's cold. Much colder than my hand. The word "set" pops into my head. Set hard as blacktop or plaster. Her expression is familiar, like someone doing an impression of her. Like a second layer of face has been stretched over her real face and sewn to place, the stitches hidden in her hairline. It's a corpse with the trappings of Nancy, but it's not her."
Raised a fundamentalist Christian, Miller goes on to a loss of faith, hell and therapy, her young life populated by chaos and bad boyfriends--and boy is she frank, Every Moment of a Fall is shot through with prize bits about everything from schizophrenia to binge drinking, a book both wild and precise any good or aspiring writer should read. .
Tthis is a remarkable book on many levels. The writing is GREAT so I fell into the story immediately and found the book hard to put down. But I was most struck by the up close description of the therapy sessions. The success of the therapy enabled the author to connect with the person who was always there but was hidden under layers of trauma and grief. There is a difference in tone between the pre therapy breakthrough person and the post therapy person. This seems to confirm the author’s good fortune in finding the kind of therapy which enabled her to unearth what seems to be the terrific person that was there all along.
