From 2013 to 2017, Linda Bostrom Knausgard was periodically confined to a psychiatric ward and subjected to electroconvulsive therapy, resulting in the loss of memories. This is the story of her struggle against mental illness and isolation. "(Bostrom Knausgard's) first openly autobiographical book becomes an act of self-examination powerful enough to match if not surpass those of her ex-husband's."-The Guardian From 2013 to 2017, Linda Bostrom Knausgard was periodically interned in a psychiatric ward where she was subjected to electroconvulsive therapy. As the treatments at this "factory" progressed, the writer's memories began to disappear. What good is a writer without her memory? This book, based on the author's experiences, is an eloquent and profound attempt to hold on to the past, to create a story, to make sense, and to keep alive ties to family, friends, and even oneself. Moments from childhood, youth, marriage, parenting, and divorce flicker across the pages of October Child. This is the story of one woman's struggle against mental illness and isolation. It is a raw testimony of how writing can preserve and heal.
