I have read both of Suzy's books. Her life seems to be very complicated on so many levels. She has made tremendous efforts to tackle her problems on every level with the commitment to make a better healthier life for herself. Her writing displays her sadness and happiness. She has created a circle of friendship connected to her healing that has worked for her. I think there is something for everyone to learn from her perserverqnce to a happy life.
This evening I will be attending a book reading by Godsigns' author Suzy Farbman. I thoroughly enjoyed reading both of Farbman's books and, believe her insights, wisdom and strength provide answers (or at least direction) to those who feel they were "short-changed" at various points in their lives. For me, reading Farbman's work was as though I were in her head, or perhaps, somehow, she were in mine. She writes with a natural, familiar tone and shares deep feelings, insights, thoughts, social insecurities -- all human, though rarely admitted. I rode the emotional roller coaster of Godsigns during airplane flights to/from Tennessee and San Francisco, repeatedly disrupting nearby passengers as I choked up, cried, or burst into laughter. Her humor was highly appreciated. The message of the book is far broader and more helpful than its title / subject-matter implies. For example, her (at times) strained relationship with her mother, and associated guilt for not visiting "enough" or for judging her mother's choices, was an area that struck a guilty chord with me. While her situation was very different, and far worse than mine, the wisdom she ultimately acquired was very helpful. These are two books to share, cringe, cry and laugh. And learn.
