Summary
This volume is account of the anguish and fierce love between the author and her brilliant, unstable and ultimately self-destructive mother, Anne Sexton (1928-1974). Anne was an American poet, known for her highly personal, confessional verse. She won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1967. Themes of her poetry include her suicidal tendencies, long battle against depression and various intimate details from her private life, including her relationships with her husband and children. The younger Sexton tries to sketch a family dynamic that involves several generations, and she tells the story of her own struggle to break free of maternal dominance even while serving as her mother's literary executor
