    Om Memory Room

    ';A California woman fights to recover from resurfaced memories of childhood abuse... powerfully imagined and profoundly insightful. ' Kirkus Reviews The novel opens with Barbara, who, after remembering incidents of torture at the hands of her father, has quite literally broken down. Found inside a disabled elevator, she is no longer able to function with her new consciousness of these memoriesthose which are so resistant to understanding. Confronted with this knowledge of evil, she must begin the painful process of remembering and reconstructing a new whole self. Helping Barbara to navigate her grief and her memories are her therapist, the Psalms, and most of all, the words of Paul Celan. Paul Celan: 1920-1970, Poet. An eastern European holocaust survivor who wrote haunting poems about the darker spiritual trials of life and relationships that exhibit a compact style that fuses broken words and chopped syntax to produce a stark musicality. This is a novel about a woman who goes to hell and back. It's a story that affirms the resilience of the human spirit and the healing power of love and faith. ';The Memory Room marks the rarest of occurrencesthe debut of a literary master.' Janet Fitch, #1 national bestselling author of White Oleander ';With subtlety, restraint and an extraordinary eye for detail, Rakow has constructed a breathtaking debut that avoids the cliches of abuse narratives as it tests the boundaries of prose and poetry.' Publishers Weekly
