Through her mother’s illness and death, the author rummages through the deepest and most complex of human relationships, half way between love and cruelty, in a powerful demonstration of honesty 
  With a blunt first-person narrator, this novel is the story of the author and the illness and death of her mother, through a questioning of her own identity and her duty as a daughter. Told in a non-linear fashion, the story recounts every stage of the cancer and, in desperately, every stage of the emotional journey: guilt, love, the urge to run away, helplessness, bravery.
