THE MEMORY ROOM.
Washington, D.C.: Counterpoint, (2002.) First Edition
Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. ) The author's first novel, the story of a woman coming to terms with her long-buried memories. Cover praise from Janet Fitch who states: "In her suspenseful, poetic, mysterious, and profound novel The Memory Room, Mary Rakow addresses the big question-how do we live with our knowledge of evil? And then what do we do with this knowledge, and how can we reconcile it with an equally profound awareness of the depth of the world's beauty and the possibility of faith? Approaching these fundamental issues not as a philosopher but as an artist using a subtle poet's touch, she explores the great paradoxes of the human condition without simplification or denial." 459 pp. Very good in illustrated wrappers. .
