Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As the sixth of 10 children born to Dutch immigrants, poet Digges ( Late in the Millennium ) has had an interesting upbringing, and here she chronicles it with humor and love. Raised on a Missouri apple orchard, she was exposed to realities of life and death early on. Her father was a doctor specializing in cancer, so contact with the terminally ill became an everyday affair. She describes how he involved his children, letting them assist in his experiments with rats and mice. The family was also deeply religious, faithfully adhering to the teachings of the Southern Baptist Church. Adolescence was tumultuous for Digges; she railed against her parents' strictures and flunked out of the Christian college where they sent her. She married a Vietnam fighter pilot and had a child, but kept to her free-spirited ways, moving to California and Texas, and eventually returned to school to complete a graduate degree after her divorce. Evocative, this memoir is filled with childlike wonder at life's simple pleasures. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Digges, the author of two books of poetry, recalls growing up in 1950s Jefferson, Missouri, as the sixth of ten children in a Dutch Reformist family. Among her most vivid early memories are the family orchard whose apples were picked every August by prison inmates, the rats her doctor father used for his cancer research, and the pond where she almost drowned. Like the 1960s, Digges's adolescence was marked by rebellion; she dropped out of college (her father wanted her to be a medical artist), got married, and became pregnant. Living in California while her husband, an Air Force pilot, was away on endless missions, Digges began writing poetry and took writing courses at a nearby college. Although her prose has a poet's grace and vision, Digges's memoirs are disappointingly vague and disjointed. She sketchily portrays her parents and her siblings (her nine brothers and sisters are virtually indistinguishable), and she is surprisingly reticent about her development as a writer. An optional purchase . -- Wilda Williams, ``Library Journal''
