- Fractured: essays on love, friendship, and the nightmares in between
on June 29, 2011
Fractured is a unique and interesting take on relationships, mostly of a romantic nature, but also friendship. Very well written and engaging, I downloaded and read it in one sitting.
Author Keiti Pierce has led a colorful life with an eclectic succession of ‘man boys’ with whom she explored the possibility of obtaining that intangible ‘something more,’ that rare relationship in which she can fully express and share herself with someone equally capable of giving back. The search continues, but she’s learned a great deal along the way and gleaned insights well worth sharing with fellow seekers, or anyone interested in how people relate—or don’t—and why that might be. This quote taken from her book struck me as profound, “As easy as it is to blame someone else when hurt feelings come into play, it really was irrelevant who was at fault in the demise of my previous relationships, romantic or otherwise. The fact of the matter is that they all had one thing in common: me. I figure that has to mean something.”
I agree. And so she begins with herself. Wise indeed. While deeply pensive and introspective, Fractured is also rich in the comic as Ms. Pierce is gifted with a wonderful sense of humor. And that’s a good thing because she’s needed it.~
