Product description


Gripping, heart-breaking, challenging - this memoir about a family in crisis is a must-read. -- Sophie Hannah After Joanne Limburg's brother committed suicide, she and her mother flew to the American midwest to bury him. Only there was no body to bury because he'd already been cremated. This is the starting point for a journey of reparation, to honour her brother's memory and the Jewish religion they both abandoned. Limburg re-treads the childhood that she and Julian shared, fearlessly confronting her loss, rage, grief and regret at every turn. In asking how it is possible to bear the unbearable, she uncovers those small pieces of memory and experience that we can salvage for consolation, and with startling insight and humour, she weighs the peculiar burdens and joys of family and faith. -- Marina Benjamin powerful memoir... a courageous piece of work and a valuable contribution to our understanding of mental health issues, and indeed suicide. * Jewish Chronicle * Can a writer be too honest? At times you want to close this book to protect its subject. -- Hilary Mantel * Guardian on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * Sharply self-aware... An articulate guide to the workings of the tormented mind. * Daily Telegraph on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * A painstaking account of life dominated by debilitating anxiety... Exceptional... [with] rare poetic insight, her candid narrative evokes both pity and admiration. * Metro on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * [Limburg] brings the clear, unsentimental poet's eye to her personal history... Moving and compelling, full of dark humour and insight. * Sunday Business Post on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * Judicious and elegant, lucid and spry, Joanne Limburg uses her uncommon gifts to anatomise an all-too-common disorder. She brings a sort of glee to the process: for all the unhappiness she describes, this remains a joyous read. -- Kate Clanchy on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH Brave, witty, intelligent, wise, and honest, it is the story of a lifelong battle with neurosis, but it transcends pathology, uncovering the extraordinary underside of all our 'ordinary' consciousness. Her unremitting candour liberates us all. -- Raymond Tallis on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH
