Ollie Ollie In Come Free: A Memoir of Swallowed Time

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Ollie Ollie In Come Free: a Memoir of Swallowed Time explores the impact of the deaths of the author's older siblings on her childhood and growth into adulthood. It is narrated largely in the child and adolescent voices, from ages three to seventeen, with adult interludes. The memoir is based on the author's reawakening of childhood memories and emotions during the process of psychoanalysis. While delving into the anguished world of an introverted child struggling with unvalidated grief, the book presents a humorous and sympathetic look at life in a large Catholic family in the 1950's and 1960's.
