Mnemosyne: A Love Affair with Memory: By Larry L Franklin - Review

Author Larry L Franklin Unveils a Gripping Tale About Memory

Memory is life’s greatest asset.  Sometimes it brings joy; other times it brings pain.  Author Larry L Franklin offers the readers a compelling story that will enable them to grasp the true meaning of memory with his new book, “Mnemosyne:  A Love Affair with Memory.”

This is the story of two men who lived in different centuries on opposite sides of the world with memory as their common obsession.  One of them is a modern-day man diagnosed with PSTD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  He struggled with the memories of childhood sexual abuse that nearly cost him his sanity.  Another man is a 19th century evolutionary biologist.  He devoted his life to the mechanics of memory.  Peer rejection, and the later death of his wife pushed him into a deep depression that led to his suicide.

Skillfully written and highly imaginative, Franklin is able to present a complex subject in a compelling narrative where the intellect, the curious, and the recipient of horrific memories can grasp its meaning.  “Mnemosyne:  A Love Affair with Memory” is a dramatic story that will provide the reader with enthralling twists and turns that lie in hiding, only to be revealed just around the corner.
