The second journal of an artist by "an extraordinary woman: sensitive, intelligent, perceptive"--Doris Grumbach.

From Publishers Weekly:

Truitt's guilt over her husband's suicide, her subsequent bitterness and concern about being true to herself as a painter, the demands of parenting and acute observations on nature are interwoven in this sensitive journal. A sequel to Daybook, this also records the challenges she faced as acting director of an artists' colony. For the author, reality is something we must invent for ourselves, and our precarious hold on it hinges on the ability to invest our activities with love. As her children grow into their 20s, she joins with them in a mutual effort at self-understanding, which helps liberate her from the past. She decodes ciphers in nature: a nesting bird, a pale, sickle moon on Thanksgiving Day dawn renew hope. Her notes on travels from Paris to Padua to Venice will be of special interest to artists and art students. Truitt is a professor of art at the Univ. of Maryland.

From Library Journal:

Daybook ( LJ 9/15/82), Truitt's journal of the years 1974 to 1980, took a hard look at her growth as a sculptor while casting a soft focus on events. Turn has more narrative force, chronicling deaths, divorces, European travel, and work. Truitt has less to say about her art but meditates gracefully upon aging, home life, and her adult children. Grown confident with self-sufficiency and success, she seeks to discover the roots of her strength in childhood and turns an even gaze on painful memories. Daybook felt both tentative and polished, frequently referring to itself. Turn is both surer and more episodic but equally moving. For large public libraries and specialized collections. Christine M. Hill, Free Lib. of Philadelphia
