Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-writen, poetic, hauntingly honest with humor, 23 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: My Sister from the Black Lagoon: A Novel of My Life (Hardcover)
Laurie Fox is truly a poet. Her autobiographical tale ellicits the difficult truths that survivors from a home with a mentally ill member hold private and constant. Lorna's troubled childhood with her mentally ill sister is fraught with the anxieties and laughter that all girls can relate to, but her struggle to succeed as an independent woman and learn to live with the guilt of surviving in a dysfunctional family are what makes the telling of the novel so relentlessly gripping. Laurie Fox bares her soul, her sorrow, and her story in an accessible, emotional, and sympathetic style. This is her first novel, but I can't wait to read more.
