Leslie Jamison á 9 summary

The Recovering review Î 109 Leslie Jamison á 9 summary read & download ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub á Leslie Jamison Mison deftly excavates the stories we tell about addiction both her own and others' and examines what we want these stories to do and what happens when they fail usAll the while she offers a fascinating look at the larger history of the recovery movement and at the literary and artistic geniuses whose lives and works were shaped by alcoholism and substance dependence including John Berryman Jean Rhys Raymond Carver Billie Holiday David Foster Wallace and Denis Johnson as well as b. 35 starsLet me start by sharing that I consider Leslie Jamison a brilliant brilliant writer The Recovering is an intelligent thorough book about addiction that includes cultural history literary criticism journalistic reportage and memoir Jamison asks thought provoking uestions and explores complex topics with a fresh sharp eye for nuance such as whether our stories need to be uniue for them to matter the extent we all go to fill our lives with some meaning or comfort and the role of addiction in creative people s artistic process She integrates her intellectual insight with an empathy and kindness so important for someone writing about addiction I also appreciated how she acknowledged her privilege recognizing that as a white woman she has a platform to share her journey and the color of her skin will protect her from a lot of judgement whereas marginalized people do not have that same armor or access to resourcesThe back and forth between memoir and literary analysis just did not work for me Again I consider Jamison such a literary star and I hope others enjoy this book But the transitions from other s stories to her own felt jarring to me I wanted to stay within her narrative and feel connected to her story without interruptions or at least connections between these writers stories and her own I feel like the literary analysis distanced us from Jamison especially for people who may already find it hard to connect with her based on her elite academic credentials I wanted of the integration of memoir and analysis and reportage I read in The Empathy Exams her stunning first essay collection Overall I liked The Recovering and would recommend it to those who know what they re getting themselves into and want to try it anyway I applaud Jamison for her author s note which shows how she takes the topic of addiction very seriously as well as her courage and compassion in sharing her own story in a society that still highly stigmatizes addiction I d be curious to read and think about her addiction to romance a topic I wrote about on my own blog as her journey with Dave paralleled her addiction to alcohol in such a consistent way I look forward to reading her next book
