    Visit my Author page on Facebook facebook zoemurdockauI ve been writing most my life, sometimes with the left side of my brain, as when writing technical documentation in the 1980 s, and sometimes with the right side, as when writing my new novel, Torn by God A Family s Struggle with Polygamy Either way, my focus has always been on the human mind My most basic desire is to know how people come to believe what they believe and how those beliefs lead them to act in specific ways Exploring the depths of another s mind, with all its intellectual and visceral layers of complexity, is as exciting and stimulating as exploring a foreign country.Given my fascination with mind, I search for books which have a unique and idiosyncratic voice It is not the writer s voice I am looking for, but the voice of the characters who live out their lives on the pages For me, voice is than just a tone or narrative style it reflects the movement and subtle nuance of a character s mind, it maps the associative leaps between one experience and the next, it connects the character s sensory experience with a unique perception Maybe the best way to say it is that everything in such stories is characterization, to one degree or another Books such as Jane Hamilton s, Book of Ruth, McCourt s Angela s Ashes, and Joyce Carol Oates , Because It Is Bitter and Because It Is My Heart, all have this quality that I so admire.In my own stories, I try to achieve a high level of psychological realism, moving into the mental space of my characters, and settling in for the duration Maintaining this kind or realism can be difficult at times For example, when I was writing from the mind of my 12 year old narrator in Torn by God, there were things I wanted to say that I couldn t say and still maintain the child s perspective Still, I felt the innocence of the child narrator was important because it was indicative of the innocence of all the characters in the story They are all controlled by the voice of their parents, by the voice of their religious leaders, by the voice of their God So I let the girl see what she could see and let the deeper meaning lie beneath the surface, in the subtext where it belongs It is there for my readers to find, if they can.

    This is a powerful book that really got me to thinking about what it s like to have Alzheimer s Zoe Murdock s writing makes you feel like you are right there in Aaron s mind, living his life, experiencing what he experiences, feeling what he feels Not only that, it s a great story It made me keep turning the pages to find out what he was going to do next I d recommend this book to anyone without reservation.

    I would never have picked this book out myself, because the cover art and title are pretty horrible, but I actually quite liked this book It was engaging and a really interesting and informative perspective for a narrative.

    In Man in the Mirror,Zoe Murdock has done the impossible she wrote a page turner of a story centered on a man losing his mind as the onset of Alzheimer s disease creeps in and begins its slow dance of destruction.Murdock has the uncanny ability to show Aaron Young s slow struggle with his consciousness and mental abilities from several points of view foremost through the mind of the protagonist whose mind ebbs and flows in and out of reality, but also through the agony of his daughter and caregi [...]
