Description

Thorogood's "auto-bio-graphic-novel" feels personal and authentic, and makes no attempt to be self-effacing. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Some of the pages are stunningly beautiful, some are incredibly creative, some are staggeringly minimal.Because it is self-conscious about that too, with Thorogood following up bold statements like ‘ Reading a book, hearing a song, observing a painting—that’s connection. It made me feel a little less alone in this world but I wouldn’t encourage a friend anywhere on their mental health journey to read this because I left it mostly feeling confused.

It's a good place to get to, but it does illustrate the overall slightness of the narrative, in that whilst the artistic endeavour of the book (hopefully) acted as a literal self-help guide for the author, as readers the less self-absorbed, more engaged-with-other-peoples'-realities person she trails at the end of the book is the author who might, in the end, give us more gifts. If you're looking for logical progression or just any kind of meaningful story in general, this is not for you, my friends. Instead she seems determined to try and form relationships with others based on a persona that seems to actively sabotage any chance of relationships ("Sorry for being weird").It jumped back and forth between the 6 month period and other parts of her life yet mostly lacked a personal level.
