Honest, heartbreaking and raw. Her talent as a poet really shines through the beautiful prose. The middle was less engaging but still a worthwhile read.

I read this for a book club and had many Thoughts but was such a frazzled mess this month that I completely MISSED THE MEETING DAY and it was genuinely heartbreaking.

Anyhoo, this felt very A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN. Don’t ask me why or how I have no answers for you.

Tove Ditlevsen really said, “ok, here’s my story. do with it as you wish.” 

compelling, honest, and written with a certain compulsiveness. i haven’t read a biography equally as powerful without ever trying to be anything other than what it is – an account of a life lived however it panned out.

Finally finished this book! I started reading this in a physical copy but then moved to an audiobook when I knew I didn't have the time to sit down and read it. The prose was stark in a kind of brutalist architecture way. It was a sad look at poverty, addiction, and motherhood. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone but I enjoyed it.
