It has the strength of an arrow: taut, spiked, quavering, working to its fatal conclusion The Iceberg is an extraordinary story told in an extraordinary way.

The Iceberg: A Memoir by Marion Coutts | Hill of Content Melbourne
Her book is a homage to an exceptional man; it's also the work of an exceptional woman artist, writing from the inside about the things women have always done: nursing, nurturing, loving. This is a book that clearly had to be written And certainly it ought to be read by anyone who ever pauses to consider our mortality.
Not quite like any other bereavement memoir I defy anyone reading her account of their last Christmas together The miracle here is not only in Coutts coming through such an ordeal, but in finding the wherewithal to observe it, unpick its complex psychology, and commit it to paper. This is human trauma, profoundly and beautifully told. Reviews Schrijf een review.
