  1. Beskrivelse

    "Heart Berries" er en hjerteskærende, stærk og dybt poetisk erindringsbog, hvor Terese Marie Mailhot fortæller ærligt om sin dysfunktionelle opvækst i det nordamerikanske indianerreservat på Sea Bird Island. Hendes hårde barndom traumatiserede hende i så høj en grad, at hun udviklede PTSD. Da hun blev diagnosticeret, stod det samtidig klart, at Terese også kæmpede med en bipolar lidelse.

    Lægerne gav Terese en notesblok, som hun brugte til at skrive sig ud af sine trængsler. Dette udviklede sig til memoirerne "Heart Berries", hvori hun på poetisk vis forholder sig til sin afdøde mor og fængslede, nærmest sataniske, far.

      Selected by Emma Watson as the Our Shared Shelf Book Club Pick for March/April 2018
      A New York Times Editor's Choice
      A Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection

      "A sledgehammer. . . . Her experiments with structure and language . . . are in the service of trying to find new ways to think about the past, trauma, repetition and reconciliation, which might be a way of saying a new model for the memoir." ?Parul Sehgal, The New York Times

      "Heart Berries by Terese Mailhot is an astounding memoir in essays. Here is a wound. Here is need, naked and unapologetic. Here is a mountain woman, towering in words great and small... What Mailhot has accomplished in this exquisite book is brilliance both raw and refined." ?Roxane Gay, author of Hunger

      Heart Berries is a powerful, poetic memoir of a woman's coming of age on the Seabird Island Band in the Pacific Northwest. Having survived a profoundly dysfunctional upbringing only to find herself hospitalized and facing a dual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder and bipolar II disorder; Terese Marie Mailhot is given a notebook and begins to write her way out of trauma. The triumphant result is Heart Berries, a memorial for Mailhot's mother, a social worker and activist who had a thing for prisoners; a story of reconciliation with her father?an abusive drunk and a brilliant artist?who was murdered under mysterious circumstances; and an elegy on how difficult it is to love someone while dragging the long shadows of shame.

      Mailhot trusts the reader to understand that memory isn't exact, but melded to imagination, pain, and what we can bring ourselves to accept. Her unique and at times unsettling voice graphically illustrates her mental state. As she writes, she discovers her own true voice, seizes control of her story, and, in so doing, reestablishes her connection to her family, to her people, and to her place in the world.

      "I am quietly reveling in the profundity of Mailhot?s deliberate transgression in Heart Berries and its perfect results. I love her suspicion of words. I have always been terrified and in awe of the power of words ? but Mailhot does not let them silence her in Heart Berries. She finds the purest way to say what she needs to say... [T]he writing is so good it?s hard not to temporarily be distracted from the content or narrative by its brilliance...Perhaps, because this author so generously allows us to be her witness, we are somehow able to see ourselves more clearly and become better witnesses to ourselves." ?Emma Watson, Official March/April selection for Our Shared Shelf
