Spin by Catherine McKenzie
Over the course of the day as I read this novel, I really got pulled into this portion of Kate's life. At the age of thirty, so didn't have much going for her. Sure she wrote free lance articles for assorted music magazines and newspapers, but she still lived the life of a starving student and that's who she found herself partying with at every opportunity.
I could totally feel Kate's confusion as she tried to sort out what her counsellor was trying to tell her at rehab and what she thought she knew about herself. Did she need to be in rehab or was it only the story. It was clear that she really was battling with this question.
Thanks to author Catherine McKenzie for a captivating read. I appreciated all the time that Kate spent examining how she read her life, and I know that when I think back on this book, I will find myself wondering what aspects of my life could use a little contemplation.
