Descrizione
"Phantom Limb" is a wise and courageous memoir that moves between past and present, chronicling an adult daughter's journey through the final years of her parents' lives. A story of discovering love through adversity as well as an inquiry into contemporary neurology and spiritual life, "Phantom Limb" is a moving meditation on the struggle to make peace with physical and emotional ghosts of the past. Janet Sternburg writes with such warmth and honesty that loss itself becomes luminous: 'This is the grace of the last years, the children coming to understand the contradictions in their parents, not to reconcile them but encompass them in a larger love.' Janet Sternburg is a widely published poet and essayist whose books include "The Writer on Her Work". A faculty member of the California Institute for the Arts, she is also a photographer whose work appears in private and museum collections.
