if I didn’t understand you, would you explain it?
if I wanted answers, would you give it?
if I felt guilty, would you understand it?
if I said sorry, would you accept it?
If I was lonely, would I realize it?
If I hurt you, would I admit it?
If I loved you, would I say it?
One Bedroom, Hall and Kitchen explores a mother-daughter relationship through a series of phone conversations, emails, text messages, recollections and reflections which span a period of one year. Using a non linear narrative, the author explores the bond between two women which is as strong as it is fragile, their emotional journey, loneliness, guilt and coming to terms with growing up and growing old.
The book has been designed like a diary, turning the reader in to a voyeur while at the same time giving them space to reflect and share their own thoughts. It is meant to be read and written in.
This book has been self published.
