What to Read After… Look Up! 20/09/21
The Illustrated Mum
Marigold, the ‘illustrated mum’ of the title, has elaborate tattoos covering her body from head to toe.
Narrated by Dolphin, the youngest of her two daughters, this is a moving, yet unsentimental account of two children coming to terms with their mother’s depression, mental instability and alcohol problem. Written with warmth, humour and understanding.
