I finished "The Chronology of Water" in about 48 hours (meaning, I couldn't stop reading.) I become leery when I see "memoir" (a conversation that has been beaten and bloodied on lit blog after lit blog) but Lidia's work is poetic and charged. (Not to mention, this was a lovely mini-vacation between last day of classes and first day of off-the-grid-thesis-writing.)
An amazing documentary about art, trauma, what "inner life" can mean... and Barbies. I feel certain I will watch this again.
