This Is Not My Memoir
Andre Gregory Cindy Kleine
I could not have happened upon a more perfect book. Murray wrote a poignant, detailed, beautiful memoir, often narrating from the perspective of a child with parents addicted to drugs. I feel that I learned more from her memoirs then I ever could from college texts or scholarly articles. Friendship often begins in aspiration and projection, as one or both parties see in the other qualities – frequently intangible and nebulous – that they admire, or envy, or that they believe themselves to lack. Sometimes we feel that something of the other might rub off on us, that we might be, to invert Philip Larkin’s thoughts about procreation, increased rather than diluted.
