Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.

Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life

Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life - Yiyun Li

 

To understand Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life by Yiyun Li, you have to understand the context in which it came to be written. I struggle with how to rate this book. On the one hand, I have enormous respect for the author's struggle with mental health. On the other hand, the book reads as a therapeutic outlet for the author rather than a memoir to be shared with others. I bear witness to the struggle, wish her well, and move on.
