Framing a Life: Building the Space To Be Me
This remarkable memoir- one of the deepest I’ve ever read- is my kind of revelation. The book made me cry out, cover my eyes, mourn, and beam with pride and appreciate the trials that led to my own emotional and spiritual growth. Roberta Kuriloff’s story will find a place alongside Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” and Amy Chua’s, “Tiger Mother.” Permeated with humility, bravery, and a bold feminist intersection, “Framing a Life,” is a triumph for many of us with both hurting and joyful hearts. It will last in our times and long, long into the future. I stand in solidarity with Ms. Kuriloff, her family and for everyone she touches with her wise and magnificent soul.

Part 1: I used to be an intense young woman. Sullen at losing my mother to cancer. Perplexed when my father left me in an orphanage. Bitter at police, politicians. An angry leftist. Almost enjoyed the anger, even though I didn’t relish being angry. It was such...
