Adult Onset by Anne-Marie MacDonald

Adult Onset by Anne-Marie MacDonaldThis is a complicated sometimes messy book that will not appeal to all, but in my opinion the book and story telling is brilliant. Difficult issues of childhood trauma (real or perceived?), debilitating post-partum depression, and mother-child relationships including maternal love and rage are all included for an incredible spectrum of issues. The core character, Mary Rose (MR, aka Mister) is sometimes completely off the rails and often neurotic, so a hard character to care about at times, which makes the storytelling all the more compelling.
