Behind the Book: Motherlines: Love, Longing, and Liberation

ASSIGNMENT FROM THE SOUL FACTORY PATRICIA REIS When my third marriage ended in 1978, I immediately salvaged my family name and began a journal. I never kept journals during the marriages. Like silence and speech, marriage and private thought could not coexist—not because I feared someone would read my words without permission, but because I feared hearing my own voice.Many writers have relied on journals and letters to help them to experiment with ideas, to communicate their feelings, to find…See More

Undertaking Memoir

Posted on July 23, 2014 at 8:30am 12 Comments
