In his memoir, Tsilimparis struggles to understand himself and his family, particularly his Mother and Father, by telling us about a difficult and often tragic childhood. He tells his story with such an honest voice that I found it hard to put this book down. How do our parents define who we are? How do we define our parents? We all strive to become the people we want to be and to separate from our parents and their history. Here is a compelling story by one person who somehow, bravely, accomplishes this.
There is a synergy to Mortal Bonds that sets it apart from and above both memoir and self-help books, though it certainly makes an important addition to both genres. As memoir, it is a page-turner that is at once heartbreaking and beautiful (Tsilimparis' pained yet ultimately sympathetic relationship with his difficult father alone provides enough depth for a fulfilling read). As a journey specific to one man's battles with the inner demons of anxiety and panic, it fills the reader with gratitude that as sufferers we are not alone. That gift also makes Mortal Bonds well worth the read. Don't miss it.
