      The several memoirs I ve reviewed have had two things in common the absolute need the authors very obviously felt to expel what they were holding within, and the courage it must have taken to publish.It s one thing for a writer of fiction to lay themselves open to the comments of the world It s another thing entirely when the subject matter exposed is the author s life.I imagine memoirists deliberate endlessly over what to include and exclude Or perhaps they don t Perhaps the path to putting dem [...]

      I agreed to write a review of Digging Deep without ever really having read a book of this type before I didn t know what to expect and I find this review very difficult to write It seems like a book as deep and honest as this one deserves a deeper review than the one I m writing It was a very thought provoking read because it encouraged me to compare this authors experiences to my own I don t know exactly why I was drawn into the story of Boyd s life as much as I was, but I wanted to keep readin [...]

      Boyd Lemon looks back on his three failed marriages not with self pity or to garner admiration or support Digging Deep is just what the title implies, a raw, honest, no holds barred analysis of his personal culpability in the failure of each of his marriages Each one is different, yet there are threads running through all three that repeat, one that I think is true for men than women That is the lack of willingness, or perhaps ability to engage in truly open discussion As such, I find the book [...]

      I ve put off writing this review for several months because I have really wanted to think about how to best convey my feelings about this book I think that the best way to really share my opinion is state that six months after reading this book I still think about it every once in a while I think about how this author completely took down any walls built up figured out who he really was as an individual and wrote it all down for the world to judge him And regardless of what people think of him h [...]

      For centuries, marriage was summed up in two words low expectations The husband got sex and a housekeeper The wife got children and a roof over her head If they really loathed each other, there was at least the hopeful prospect of one or the other dying young Better luck next time Queen Victoria and Prince Albert threw a monkey wrench into this sensible system Not content to produce a huge dynastic brood, they also let it be known that they were in love and blissfully happy Suddenly the bar was [...]

      Subtitled, A Writer Uncovers His Marriages , this piece of autobiography is a fascinating and compelling insight into the mind and spirit of an American writer.A reader from outside the sometimes insular and self congratulatory arena of the USA, I found this memoir accessible, moving, entertaining and surprisingly informative about than just the author and his wives The reader is taken deep into the lives of the subjects All are flawed and most reflect the human condition that prevents us from [...]

      I just finished reading this book I highly recommend reading this book, especially if you have been through a divorce or a broken relationship This author s drive to dig deeper to understand his part in failed marriages and to discover his authentic self is a driving force behind this book.It s a painful process discecting his marriages I feel that I gained a lot personally by reading about his journey of self discovery I also have a great desire to dig deep to find my authentic self I admire hi [...]

      Digging Deep A Writer Uncovers His Marriages by Boyd Lemon is an autobiographical book about Mr Lemon s three marriages and the role he played in his three divorces The author is brutally honest when looking at himself and the people in his lives, sometimes to the point of making the reader uncomfortable with such honesty.Mr Lemon, through writing, was able to finally face the issues that made him behave the way he did He writes switching from the past to the present in a style that feels like t [...]

      Digging Deep, a memoir by Boyd Lemon, provides critical insight int what factors contributed to his failure in three marriages and, perhaps, as an individual It seems no detail is omitted throughout the book there are many descriptions of intimate and personal interactions he has between people.The book spans the decades of the 60 s through the late 00 s Although the book lacks a substantial amount of details that distinguish the decades, that is not the point of the book The point is of someth [...]

    10. Wendy Hines says:

      From the first page, Mr Lemon captured my attention, spending time with his grandchildren and watching how his daughter and son in law interacted with them Perhaps if he has spent time and affection with any of this three wives, his marriages may have turned out differently The author is very candid about his life, and he doesn t push blame around Growing up in a different time, women stayed home They took care of the kids, the house and made dinner They didn t work When a young Boyd gets marri [...]

    12. Red Haircrow says:

      Digging Deep by Boyd Lemon is plain in delivery with flourishes of creative phrase that are interesting yet never mask truth from the author s perspective There was much hard won wisdom throughout the narrative that could apply across cultures, but I did find some of it especially related to what I think of as new American and of European descent So for some, me included, the general life and story wasn t applicable per se.There were parts I could understand and empathize with such as not wanti [...]

      Mr Boyd Lemon is a very honest man and at times is brutal in his honesty towards himself and his marriages It was very enlightening to read and made me reflect on my life and relationships.The book is very much equal parts of process and product The idea that you can write about how and why you are writing about your past is an interesting one though it does make for some confusing moments in the book where you are unsure of when he is speaking and writing I found the references to the years and [...]

      Wow I just finished reading Digging Deep and I have to say, this is by far one of the best memoirs I ve ever read Clearly, Boyd poured his heart into this work, and it shows With absolute brutal honestly, the author describes the elements of so many failed marriages, two of my own included Lack of communication is the biggest one followed very closely by lack of understanding of oneself Of course, that is a chicken and egg scenario if you don t understand yourself well enough, how can you commun [...]

    15. Sara says:

      I was lucky to win a copy of this book through the First Reads program.This is an incredibly brave and breathtakingly honest look back at a life that initially seems to be unsatisfying to the author He s been through three marriages and four children, and is basically lost as to why they didn t work and what part he played in their demise.Incredibly intimate details emerge as Mr Boyd digs deep to find out what happened in his past the book pulls no punches and he doesn t shy away from the ugly b [...]

      Or The History of Marriage It was really interesting to hear about the cultural issues during the past 50 years or so that influenced Lemon, and obviously his marriages Writing has always been an extremely emotional affair for me, and I can only imagine the kind of internal exploration and true digging that Lemon must have gone through during the process of writing this novel I would definitely recommend Digging Deep anyone who has been, is, or wants to experience the joy of marriage, this truly [...]
