Review of The Day My Mother's Head Exploded (Short Version)

THe part of this piece that captures my attention is how the illness turned the mother into an open person, how she likes sex better etc. I would like to have heard more about that and what the world is like for her mother now that she is "open", not so much about the story of how the illness struck. I also wanted more about the relationship between the daughter and the mother and how it changed. That would make it a stronger piece. THe part at the end about not worrying about work or cellphones, I found, was a bit cliched.
