Über diesen Titel


This powerful and sometimes harrowing book is an inquest into the mystery of the suicide of the author's mother, as well as an account of suicide's effect on its survivors--especially children. "Beautifully told . . . a sobering, eloquent account . . . honest and courageous".--San Francisco Chronicle.

From Publishers Weekly:

A chronicle of emotional child abuse, Hammer's slim autobiography is a courageous attempt at tracing the root causes of her mother's and her own chronic depression. In the spring of 1950, while the author and her three older brothers slept and their overbearingly misogynistic father was out of town, her mother "set up the ironing board in front of the open oven, turned on the gas, lay down on the ironing board, and waited for the gas to do its work." Only nine years old at the time of the suicide, Hammer ( Passionate Attachments ) has spent a lifetime battling her own urges to follow in her mother's footsteps, and this work is clearly an exercise in survivor therapy. Through somewhat detached and at times poetically pretentious prose, Hammer paints a tragic picture of her family's pathological--and seemingly generational--need for control and the heart-wrenching consequences.
