The Memory Palace
A MemoirAudiobook CD - 2011
This moving, compassionately candid memoir by artist and children's book author Bartok describes a life dominated by her gifted but schizophrenic mother Norma Herr. After Norma Herr's sometimes violent schizophrenic episodes became too much to bear, Mira Bartok and her sister changed their names and cut off all contact in order to keep themselves safe. After seventeen years Mira would discover that her mother was homeless and dying. On her deathbed she gave Mira and her sister the key to a storage unit filled with items from the past, items that would trigger a flood of memories.
