Harrowing Memoir of Damaged Childhood by Top Travel Author Susie Kelly Which Took 10 Years To Write Finally Published
As bestselling travel author Susie Kelly’s heartbreaking memoir I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry... gathers ecstatic reviews, the author reveals why It took 10 years to write.
LONDON, UK: Susie Kelly’s popular comedy books about her life in France dominate the Amazon French Travel charts, often with all 5 in the Top 20. But in her latest book I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry... (Amazon Kindle/Paperback, Blackbird Digital Books, May 2013) Susie tells a very different kind of a story. A catalogue of emotional abuse is revealed as, with her beautiful mother and handsome father, Susie sails away from 1950s post-war London to Kenya, a country in a state of emergency. Each time it seems things cannot get any worse, they do as Susie lifts the lid on her own, often shocking, behavior in her quest to protect herself and those she loves.
“Over the last few months I have written late into the night, when I could be alone and cry unseen. I’ve shed more tears than a human body could feasibly produce, and I’ve eaten my way through endless plates of comfort food. Finally I’m happy with what I have written, satisfied that it is honest and sincere and as good as I can make it.” Susie Kelly, “A Long Time Coming” No Damn Blog
“What a story! Written in Susie’s extremely honest way, but unlike her other books, in this one, we learn of her childhood in England and Kenya, her life choices and the decisions she has had to make.”
“Susie is not afraid to put into words her feelings of insecurity as a young girl, evoking compassion for the trials she endured.”
“I’m sure autobiographies can be a form of therapy but this one must have been the most painful book to write. I read it in one session. There is humour and there is humanity.”
“At one point I was almost ready to shout at the book: No, no don’t do it!
The whole story is a great tug on the heart strings. I couldn’t put the book down and have every intention of reading it again.”
