A Review of Simon Williams’ “Torn”

Reading Other People

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a book called “Torn: The Story of an Undeserving Wallaby Drowning in a Septic Tank.” I knew what a wallaby was, and I know a bit about Australia, but nothing prepared me for Simon Williams’ charming and heart-wrenching tale of tragedy and hope.

Written in a sort of stream of consciousness type style, Simon Williams tells a story that is not only true, but extremely insightful. There are equal parts humor and sadness, but Williams manages to tie in all of his seemingly random thought processes into one cohesive whole memoir.
