Dora: A Headcase by Lidia Yuknavitch
Dora: A Headcase

Domi, January 23, 2013

Yuknavitch successfully uses farce as a construct to pull off serious cultural criticism by poking fun and using outrageous exaggeration as a device. Her storytelling is deliberate and she is an expert at weaving multiple meanings into her work that teach, inform and transform the reader without knowing they are being transformed until after its all over.
I would seriously suggest this book as a teaching tool in various courses, from Psychology to Philosophy and Women's studies to Literature, just as a start.

Last week, I got to see one of these up close, and although I have a cornucopia of iOS devices, none of them suit my need to read. This little KOBO's soft screen and yummy size left me wanting. So yes, please. I would like to win one!

The Chronology of Water: A Memoir by Lidia Yuknavitch
The Chronology of Water: A Memoir

Domi, January 1, 2012

A riveting anti-memoir woven out of beautiful original language that makes you climb inside your own heart and take a look at the world through a new lens. I can't stop reading and referencing this book so full of honesty and heartbreak. Congratulations to Lidia Yuknavitch for singing her truth and breaking the rules and to Hawthorne Press for publishing such a brave piece of work.
