Heart Earth: A Memoir

Heart Earth: A Memoir


Ivan Doig’s spouse memoir to his bestselling This condominium of Sky—inspired through the letters his mom wrote in the course of international battle II—is “a lyrical evocation of the Doigs’ gallantly hardscrabble life and love for the unforgiving Montana mountains” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Raised by means of his father and maternal grandmother, Ivan Doig grew up with just a obscure reminiscence of his mom, who died on his 6th birthday. Then he came upon a cache of her letters, and during them, a spunky, passionate, can-do lady emerged. His mom used to be as at domestic within the saddle as in the back of a stitching laptop, and as in love with language as her son.

In this prize-winning prequel to his acclaimed memoir This residence of Sky, Doig brings to existence his early life earlier than his mother’s loss of life, and the family’s trip from the Montana mountains to the Arizona wasteland and again back. “Profoundly unique and lustrous,” (Kirkus Reviews) Doig eloquently captures the feel of the yankee West in the course of and after international battle II, the fortune of a family members, and one woman’s indomitable spirit. Doig is “a colloquial stylist with out equal…and Heart Earth is a e-book that again and again proves the ability of language” (Los Angeles Times).
