How to Forget

How to Forget is the second memoir written by Kate Mulgrew. While I enjoyed it, I liked her first, Born with Teeth (reviewed here) more. The book is about Mulgrew’s return to Iowa to take care of her parents in the final months of their lives. The first half is about Mulgrew’s father and the second half is about her mother. The section on her mother was tough to read – it’s about her mother’s Alzheimers disease and, because of the eight-year progression (as opposed to her father’s rapid decline and more sudden death), it seemed even more hopeless.
