Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0955672503, Paperback)Tru is the story of Gertrude Hayes, a lifelong social outcast living out her final days in a residential home. When Tru's only genuine friend gives her a journal, the restless ghosts of her past immediately close in on her, demanding that she confront the memories she so desperately wants to leave behind. Deeply afraid, Tru begins to write. Interweaving imagination and observation, Tru journeys through recollections of loss, longing, love and isolation, as she attempts to rediscover hope and forge a new sense of self. With humour and grace, her startling narratives and poignant meditations explore patterns of life and destiny, and the role of stories in our consciousness, forming an exquisite account of a unique woman's experience of the world. Skilfully written, with a language that strikes the major notes of our own timeless and wordless experiences, Tru is an utterly tragic memoir, and offers a fragile prayer for us all.
