Susanna Tamaro recounts her journey in this courageous, intimate, and powerful memoir. Born during a dark and stormy night in Trieste, where the violent “bora” wind demolishes everything in its wake, her childhood was plagued by a sense of emptiness stemming from her father’s abandonment and her cold, distant mother. Throughout her childhood and adolescence, she discovered the world through beauty, nature, love, friendship, poetry, and literature. Shaken by Trieste’s destructive earthquake, she lived in Rome during Italy’s violent years of terrorism, and finally found freedom in the power of words and writing. An ode to life, despite its darker moments.
