Received as an uncorrected proof from LibraryThing for an honest review The first time I ever met Memoir was at the back of a high school creative writing class If you ve never been in a creative writing class or have always plopped down front and center in eager anticipation of being doused in literary genius I highly suggest a trip down the row to a seat at the back for a change if you re given the opportunity The literary genius might thin out a little bit from point A to point B but I believe it has its own charm somewhat like sitting at the back of the bus the vibe is different Especially when paired with the inebriating combination of dust motes and straying sun rays that a well placed window provides Our teacher a passionate proponent of daily free writing and red gel pens stood at the front of the room and settled into a reading from The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros Memoir expanded as if her presence were illumined Previously we d been on speaking terms but never really connected She ran with a different crowd Suddenly there she was a presence that was gaining the gravity of a hard and fast crush I think it was the energy and beauty of Cisneros vignettes that really pulled the curtain up on how enticing Memoir was At least that s how it connected in my mind for years one enhanced by the other with Cisneros style lingering over any thought of Memoir and shaping the ideal When I received Roberge s Liar the first thing I noticed was the style Roberge delivers his memoir in dated bursts the dates scattered throughout giving the book a conversational feel than a chronological one It s an intriguing style and adds its own texture to the book Much as Cisneros vignettes shape the taste and texture of The House Though I skimmed through the book when I first got it I put it off to the side for a bit I was wary of the content I hadn t read anything by Roberge previously but I had checked out the synopsis of the book and knew it encompassed Roberge s struggles with addiction and mental illness I think it s increasingly important to have realistic accounts of these subjects among others out in the world but I tend to shy away from shock the reader writers I wasn t sure where this book would fall and I think its synopsis does it a bit of a disservice in this regard Namely in its opening line An intense memoir about mental illness memory and storytelling from an acclaimed novelistEffecting content about the realistic struggles of those with addictions of any kind and mental illness is important but affected content does harm than good in my opinion Though it was difficult to read parts of Roberge s book I ve come away from it believing it to be the former rather than the latter There were parts I didn t like or didn t get I didn t get the point of Roberge enlisting historical reference in his memoir Other than a recurring story concerning the aftermath of the sinking of the Titanic that is expanded upon throughout the book and a couple references to cases of CTE included references felt like a detraction rather than an aide to the overall vibe of the book Also while its style is intriguing it began to wear a bit as the book went on There are so many events and so many people mentioned in this memoir that details get a bit buried in such a scattered account Overall however I liked the book for one main reason It is not the book to read if you are battling addiction self harm andor mental illness and you want something consistently uplifting to get you through a bad moment It s a raw account of what these struggles feel like and as such it is both triggering and emotional But having such an account that you can relate to even if only in small parts is important I would recommend this book to those who can empathize with or have experienced such struggles with the warning that is a heavy read one that you might need to step away from along the way but one that certainly has something to offer The
