I Wore the Ocean in the Shape of a Girl, a memoir of addiction and grief, understanding and survival from a poet who recovers from alcoholism only after she sees her adopted son die of leukemia, is written in a series of stunning snapshots. The book is as much about survival as it is about maternal love, as much about forgiveness as it is about acceptance. Through her family's history, Groom traces with clarity and grace the forces that shape life, death, and a bold new literary voice.
