Sinossi

From the age of three Jonathan Self had only one ambition: not to be like his father. Despite his determination to be a better man -- and a better parent than his own had been -- Jonathan was a twice-divorced father of three and, at age thirty-five, spiraling. Self Abuse is the story of Jonathan's efforts to break free from the cycle of despair and dysfunction that characterized his youth. A brilliantly rendered, unapologetic memoir about the pain and joy of parenthood, Jonathan's story is as heartbreaking, redemptive, and unforgettable as it is true.

5.0 su 5 stelle A great title, a better book 23 novembre 2004
Di Dangle's girl - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
With such a clever title, I couldn't resist picking up this book. And once I started reading, I couldn't put it down.

Self relates the story of his horrific childhood in a matter-of-fact, dispassionate tone, yet somehow manages to salvage some kind of affection for his titanically selfish parents. As a Brit, he seems to be immune from the American disease of turning every setback into something sentimental and "life-affirming," yet the book was still quite touching and brought me to tears with its last lines. His realization that he is repeating his parents' mistakes will break your heart.

The best memoir I've read in years.

3.0 su 5 stelle Sadder but Wiser? 3 giugno 2005
Di Rich Heim - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I'm not sure what exactly made me buy this book. I was looking for a memoir from someone NOT famous I suppose. That and the fact that he's a father and promised on the cover to talk about fathering. I thought, I'm a divorced father, maybe I can relate!

Well, I could, to a point. After spending most of the book talking about how screwed up his childhood he then details how screwed up his adult life became. Apparently he became the very person that he despised - like a mix of both his parents, and maybe a few brothers as well. I did keep reading though....

It's not until the closing pages that we begin to see some light in this guys life. This, thanks to some therapy and self examination. I had to wonder why he didn't seek therapy long ago instead of turning to drugs, drink, and "self abuse". I think the book itself is part of his therapy.

To me, the book is a well written and compelling, but ultimately depressing and self serving memoir. But, maybe that's what a memoir is meant to be?

I first heard about this book on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Radio National. I found that Jonathan Self wrote in an honest and dispassionate style, which I appreciated as a reader. The book shows that with honesty and introspection, you can choose to change your life, if you are motivated enough. It's also reassuring to know that no matter how disfunctional your family, it can be a source of learning and can encourage resourcefulness; good things can come from bad. I really enjoyed this book. It made me sad at times but it was certainly a book that was most compelling and interesting to read.
