520    "The Mother Knot is Kathryn Harrison's exploration of her 
       painful feelings about her mother, and of her depression 
       and recovery. Writer, wife, mother of three, Harrison 
       finds herself, at age forty-one, wrestling with a black, 
       untamable force that seems to have the power to undermine 
       her sanity and her safety, a darkness that is tied to her 
       relationship with her own mother, dead for many years but 
       no less a haunting presence. Shaken by a family emergency 
       that reveals the fragility of her current happiness, 
       Harrison falls prey to despair and anxiety she believed 
       she'd overcome long before. A relapse of anorexia becomes 
       the tangible reminder of a youth spent trying to achieve 
       the perfection she had hoped would win her mother's love, 
       and forces her to confront, understand, and ultimately 
       cast out - in startling physical form - the demons within
