For anyone who has ever suffered postpartum depression, Lisa Romeo’s powerful essay in Sweet: A Literary Confection is a must read. Honest and brave, beautifully written and ultimately hopeful.
Lisa is the kind of writer, where you’re surfing along, you click on the piece, see it is long (for your short little bloggy attention span) and think, “I’m going in,” because you know every word will be put together artfully. It’s not skim, skim, blah cut to the chase, it’s, “Wow. I love how she said that.” You know it will be worth it.
Lisa’s blog is always chock-full-o writerly gems as well. Check it out here.
