Truitt was a sculptor and a writer, a gardener and a mother, an artist whose journal reflects the banal bits of Sturm und Drang that plague every working parent in tandem with the persistent philosophical questions that jockey for position for anyone making a life deep in the studio. That she found a way to express these as equal components in her daily life makes for wonderful reading: it’s neither saccharine nor obtuse, but real, and really interesting.
