A Life's Work | Rachel Cusk
Pickpick

I love her honest description of motherhood. At times frustrating, boring, terrifying, and yet she describes her lover for her daughter so fiercely

Reviewers who are mothers called this 'laugh out loud' funny. As someone peering around the corner at motherhood myself, I am leaning more towards it being slightly horrifying and at times as riveting as a thriller. Cusk is a fantastic writer and her speaking to the issue of children and who looks after them as being profoundly political, captured a lot of my thoughts in a way I couldn't put together before. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

A gorgeously written memoir about the bewildering transition from person to parent.

A memoir of Cusk's pregnancy and the early years of her life as a mother, her writing is riveting, raw, and unforgettable. Her way of putting her thoughts and experiences into the words she chooses is so unexpected, and delightful. Recommended for Ferrante fans, different topics but a similar sense of voice and style.

I picked this up to see if I'd like her style before committing to her new trilogy, and let me say I'll read anything she writes.
