"Block shows how someone standing in another's strong shadow can endure maternal domination, witness the corrosion of time on vanity, and escape to construct a rich, productive life on her own terms."
"A book of emotional aptitude such as this is rare, and "Bertha Alyce: Mother exPosed" is worth having for its unique style. A lifetime of photographs seem both familiar and alarming, spinning a narrative of their own that tugged on my heart like lost memories. I found hope and communion in "Bertha Alyce: Mother exPosed"; Block's personal journey is an affecting ride that may prompt you to examine your own memories."
""Bertha Alyce" is many things: it is a catharsis, an exposA(c), and a glimpse into affluent Jewish life in the South. It is like a museum exhibit between two covers. Like all art, it is deeply personal, challenging and at times, uncomfortable. . ."Bertha Alyce: Mother exPosed" is a portrait unlike any other; a fitting tribute to a unique woman and all the complexities of the mother-daughter relationship."
