The Glass Eye: A memoir 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
AnnSheridan More than 1 year ago
Tortured by grief, daunted by the task of writing about a man whose death clearly shattered her heart into pieces while battling her own mental illness, Jeannie Vanasco skillfully embraced her Dad's glass eye as a metaphor for him, herself (a capital "I") and her deceased half-sister, Jeanne (missing an "i"). The Glass Eye is about Ms. Vanasco's love for her father, her search to learn more about her half-sister Jeanne, and her journey through grief and mental illness. These themes are then complemented by sharing the transparency of her writing struggles. "I don't know how to grieve," is a thread the author weaves throughout The Glass Eye. I disagree. Jeannie Vanasco knows how to grieve and does it well. She honored the memory of her father by keeping her promise to write a book for him. Her passionate and heartfelt style of writing makes The Glass Eye a unique and special gift to the memoir genre.
