To celebrate some amazing authors, the How To Be… podcast channel is doing another exclusive book giveaway! We are hailing the new book Don’t Forget To Scream: Unspoken Truths About Motherhood from writer Marianne Levy, published by Phoenix Books.
In this frank, funny and fearless memoir, Levy writes with heart-wrenching honesty about love and loss, rage and pain, fear and joy. She breaks the silence around the emotional turmoil that having a child can unleash. Not to mention, she asks why motherhood is at once so venerated and so undervalued.
In 2018, within a handful of days of having her second child, she felt compelled to write the essay ‘Two Weeks‘, which was published on Medium. A few months later, she wrote ‘The Mothers‘. The huge response to these essays led her to write extensively about motherhood, both on Medium and for The i. Don’t Forget To Scream: Unspoken Truths About Motherhood was originally published in 2022.
Here’s what the critics had to say…
“Some serious thinking about feminism and its intersection with women’s health policy, the environment, employment and the philosophy of everyday life [. . .] flashes of brilliance [. . .] She’s quite right to point about that women’s pain, from the first period cramps to later-life illnesses, is treated differently to men’s. And her prose can be lovely [ . . .] Levy comes alive as a writer musing on her own mother, or her daughter’s first, poignant questions about the Holocaust, or just her own rather interesting psychological make-up [. . .] clearly a good writer”. ― The Times
“Phenomenal. Words like ‘searing’ and ‘extraordinary’ and ‘blistering’ will be used about this book, and they will not convey one tenth of the strength of it, nor the honesty nor the bravery in writing it”. ― Emma Flint, author of Little Deaths
