Our Bookseller says:
“Some memoirs are written to benefit the audience. Some are written just for the author. But almost all will try to convince you that the main character is a good person with the best intentions. This is not one of those memoirs.
Heart Berries is born out of profound guilt and shame, both personal and political. Mailhot’s airy and elevated prose stops at no lines: this one tiny book contains humor, pain, reconciliation, and trauma. Mailhot lays out her transgressions, the ones done to her and those she did, in their purest form.
No, she is not a good person with all the best intentions, but one person can be so much more. This is a catalogue of more.” – Niya
