A moving memoir

A woman reluctantly takes on the responsibility of putting her eccentric rebellious mother into a retirement home and managing her care. She has her own daughter to raise and nurture, a marriage and a business to hold together, and her own psychological troubles due in good part to how she was mothered.

My Mother, My Madness is Colleen Higgs’s diary of her mother’s last ten years. It is at once funny, harrowing, mundane, chaotic, and full of insight. It is a rich and moving story which unfolds through its characters like a novel. R180 from all good bookstores, Loot and Takealot.
