YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
I must have been ten years old when my mother took me to see Mommie Dearest and then bragged to her friends that I'd laughed through the wire hanger scene.The End of Eve: A Memoir by Ariel Gore, published by Hawthorne Books.
Ariel Gore is a writer of memoir, fiction, and contemporary contemplation, and the spirited editor of Hip Mama magazine. In The End of Eve, Gore's latest memoir, she tells the tender, dark, sad, and funny story of caring for her dying mother. It's a great book and deserving of the buzz it has generated.
