Overland reviews Song for Rosaleen


Michalia Arathimos at Overland reviews Pip Desmond's Song for Rosaleen.

'It is dementia’s nature to erode the idea of a continuous story of the self. Along with the many Rosaleens described here, we have many Desmonds as well: the Desmond who is a frustrated advocate for her mother, the Desmond who strives for familial responsibility, and the Desmond who, childlike, is filled with grief and loss. This book is a last great, and articulate, act of care.'
