This gripping memoir pulls no punches. Griffin writes with raw intensity throughout the ordeal, from the sexual abuse she suffered as a child to the emotional and physical estrangement from her mother and the rest of the family. It is only with her mothers diagnosis and eventual death from breast cancer that the author can begin to rise up and overcome the fears, sorrows and agonies that paralyzed her emotionally and left her flailing in a downward spiral.It is uncommon for such raw, intimate tragedy to be addressed so artistically and poetically, as Griffin triumphantly does. Language Lessons is for the survivors, those who are left behind. Anyone who knows the pain and heartbreak of losing a friend or family member to cancer will relate to this book.
