You aren't stupid.
You know there's no such thing as a perfect mother.
Plenty of other books will tell you there is, but this one won't lie to you.

I was weak and I cheated and I was punished, but my god I loved my child through all of it.
Love means you never break, and it means you're stronger than the things they do to you. I know this is true because I have been through fire, and I am the proof that love survives.

I am not a perfect mother but I will tell you the perfect truth, because this is you and me talking.
This is my story.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Stunning... a haunting work of art. - Newsweek

Chris Cleave has the ability to create moving and beautiful scenes within a terrifying backdrop. I couldn't put it down; it's subversive, thought-provoking and well-written. - Observer, Books of the Year

Richly sardonic and often disarmingly poignant... How can one fail to be impressed and moved? - Guardian

Cleave's heroine is by turns funny, sad, flawed, sympathetic, both damaged and indomitable, and triumphantly convincing. - Sunday Telegraph

Stunning - New York Times AND International Herald Tribune AND Bookmarks Magazine

This is a compulsive read, sure to stir the dust - CITY AM

Searing.. poignant and compelling.. Utterly believable and mesmerizing - Newsday

Dark, tense and undeniably provocative - Metro

Hilariously sympathetic and convincing - San Francisco Chronicle

Mesmerizing - Washington Post

“Raw and Powerful”

Having read and enjoyed Cleave's The Other Hand, I was prepared for the starkness of his writing. Even so, I was shocked by the intensity of the emotions portrayed in this letter to Bin Laden - it is powerful and... More

“I loved this book”

This the third, I have read by Chris Cleave, and they are each entirely different from one another, I would highly recommend them all; they are mostly unputdownable.
This rather clever author, takes you on a... More
