mother said

And then there are books like Mother Said, a tiny collection of poems by American poet Hal Sirowitz. This is the kind of book that just says it all, from mother bashing to mother love, very simply put, in a minimal amount of words. I just read it tonight, translated to Norwegian (Sirowitz is a best-selling poet in Norway; Mother Said and My Therapist Said have been translated by acclaimed Norwegian author Erlend Loe; Mother Said has also been adapted for the stage in Norway and turned into a series of animated cartoons). I would quote something telling from it, but it's in Norwegian, and this blog is in English.
