The tone of the work is very reminiscent of poetry’s “confessional” school: deeply personal and addressing an individual’s private experiences and presenting them for public consumption. This is a daring feat, and like confessional poets, Gorog invites the reader into his life, not only his own, but that of his family’s as well. Family is an important theme throughout the work and serves as a root by which the book grows as a whole. In one part, the author reveals:
“I permitted the pattern of my acceptance of the incorrect action or opinion and the pattern of others’ assumptions of correctness to continue for extremely long periods.”
In such a simple acknowledgement of his actions, the author attains an immediate connection with the reader. He becomes a trustworthy narrator worthy of our confidence. There is a reason why integrity is so important in the writing craft that includes both fiction and nonfiction. Readers can immediately recognize counterfeit emotion. And yet when writing succeeds, it occurs when the author has put himself out there, holding nothing back. This is exactly where the work derives its greatest strength; by being completely open, the integrity and honesty of the work shines through and imparts an authenticity that few works of this genre attain.
This is a striking work and succeeds in not lecturing the reader but encourages him to use the author’s life as a paradigm that is very accessible and relateable. The lessons learned do not apply to one person but are applicable to a larger audience whose experiences are inevitably very similar on base levels. This is a good book for those seeking to regain focus and control over their lives and demonstrates that even the most seemingly daunting impasses can be overcome through determination and conviction.
