CHARACTERS º Toutes les familles heureuses Ns me plaindre je voudrais même en faire rire sans regrets Les enfants n’ont parfois ue le choix de la fuite et doivent souvent à leur évasion au risue de la fragilité d’aimer plus encore la vie. After having let this book sit with me for some time I can say this is my favorite memoir Generally speaking memoirs are deemed worthy of being published by their uniueness Prior to reading this book held that to be true This changed disabused me of that beliefHerve Le Tellier and Adriana Hunter team up again Hunter previously translated his novel Enough About Love The title of this book borrows from the opening line of Anna Karenina All happy families are alike each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way and lurks in the background of this entire book Le Tellier tells us about his time growing up in Paris living mostly with his mother and stepfather but mostly being raised by this grandparents He shares his family tree divulging a bit about their inner lives of his biological and adopted families He does this with the distanced afforded by old age also the passing of his father and stepfather and the dementia of his mother tender honesty and dry humor At the heart of this tale of a mother with undiagnosed mental illness an enabling servile stepfather and an absentee father is a stance against the notion that children must love their parents regardless of whether the parents are worthy of love I was impressed by how Tellier was not preachy nor bitter He was neither physically abused robbed of opportunity nor encouraged to a sordid life By all accounts his upbringing was unremarkable and so normal His parents like all parents had flaws and he simply didn t have a loving relationship with them This is uite a common experience This is what makes this memoir so worthy of praise Parents especially mothers are revered which is understandable and in many cases deserved but it leaves little room for one to share that they are not close to their parents When someone does reveal that they are met with well intented suspicion What did you do But that s your momdad How could you not love them I love that this is titled All Happy Families because although Tolstoy asserts that all happy families are alike in actuality all families are like in the way that Le Tellier is describing Parents are imperfect and are supposed to be loved irrespective of personality and behavior This memoir was at times sober critical and flat out funny I read this book in 24 hours I laughed for most of that time Le Tellier is a fantastic storyteller I think this is the best memoir for its capture of a uietly whispered but well lived truth
