From the poet behind bone, a lyrical memoirpart prose, part verseabout coming-of-age, uncovering the cruelty and the beauty of the wider world, and redemption through self-discovery and the bonds of familyMy little brother and I saw a unicorn in the garden in the late nineties.Im telling you. Neither one of us made it up; it was as real as anything else.The Terrible, Yrsa Daley-Wards brave, raw, lyrical memoir that captures the surreal magic and incredible discomfort of adolescence, burgeoning sexuality, rootlessness, and connection. Through emotional snapshots that span from her adolescence through her early twenties, each brought to life in Yrsas signature style of open white spaces and stirring, singular lines, The Terrible evokes the pain and thrill of girlhood, as well as what it means to discover the fear and power that come with being a woman. With a sharp eye and a rare talent for mining the beauty and the sorrow in the everyday, Yrsa recounts her remarkable life: growing up as one of the only black children in a poor, white, working class town; navigating the extreme Christianity of her family; inquiring after her paternity; moving through phases of addiction and sexual encounters; and ultimately finding her place in her family and in life....

The Terrible Reviews

  • Tara

    Labeled as a "lyrical memoir" which was very different and challenging for me, I enjoyed it but kept feeling like I wanted it to either be more of a book or more poetry, but the prose vs verse in-between was an interesting challenge to engage with. I took my time with this since she writes throughout about depression and the heaviness and darkness she paints is quite vivid.

  • Degan Walters

    I adore Yrsa Daley-Ward and her poetry, and she sure has had an interesting life but this account fell a bit flat for me. It felt like it was written in a big rush and there are some poetic elements but also several parts that feel thrown together. I will look for more from her.

    This is a very unique memoir, with large parts of it written in verse. There's no pattern to what the next page was going to be (a poem or prose), but that was perfectly OK. I was too wrapped up in the author's words. Needless to say, I loved this book.

    Yrsa Daley-Ward tells a very honest story about her life. Her and her younger brother grow up in a very strict, very religious Seven-Day Adventist household with her mother's parents. With her father absent, her and her brother go to live with th

  • Madeline Miles

    I really loved this book. A mix of poetry and prose and written in a way where even a non-poet can be totally enthralled and want to continue to turn the page. She’s a really talented writer with a knack for telling stories—a perfect combo for a really wonderful book.

  • Louise Pennington

    The Terrible is simply exquisite.

  • Michelle Despres

    I devoured part one. It was riveting. I liked the other three parts a bit less.

    "Lyrical memoir" is a good description. A reader expecting poetry may be disappointed.

  • Laura King

    Incredible memoir that feels more like verse than prose. So sad and gorgeous and compelling.

  • Flor

    I adore Yrsa, she's a force. I was just surprised her writing didn't feel more original, unique. There were some beautiful passages but overall it was like I had read this book many times before. But do read Bone and also her appearance at GAL <3
