This memoir is about a woman’s search for self as she attempts to make sense of certain events of her childhood.
Annie is widowed in 1984. Tom was an alcoholic, a replica of her father. Shirley, a delightful nymphomaniac, helps Annie search for her soul mate. Annie is only attracted to alcoholics. Her love is obsessive, behaviour compulsive. She can’t choose or decide freely. Annie becomes addicted to sex. Fuck is her favourite word.
In 2004, on the twentieth anniversary of Tom’s death, Annie is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Why? She’s been fighting her own psyche for a long time. Is her subconscious mind running her life? Annie is still a vulnerable little girl in an adult body.
If you think you need therapy or just want a good laugh, buy the book. You’ll get both.
