Grief. As another child of an alcoholic Catholic father, I felt an empathy with the author as I read Kate Mulgrew’s memoir titled, How to Forget: A Daughter’s Memoir. I approached the book expecting less candor than the talented actor delivers in this emotional and vulnerable book. Written from a place of grief following the death of both parents, the book is packed with love and caring as well as understanding while still disclosing the suffering among so many of the individuals described. There’s wit and self-deprecation and the telling of interesting family stories. Most of all, this is a tribute by a daughter infused with love.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
