Room 11 by mari reiza

room 11

Intelligent and darkly emotive…

Reiza returns with a fascinating story of two women, both broken and connected by their mental anguish. The world of Sofia, a comma patient, is small, full of agony, and confined to a hospital room where her husband stays with her day-in-day-out. There are delusions, anguish, hope, fear, and anger as Sofia’s mind goes through a revealing journey while she stays unconscious in her bed. Meanwhile, a delusional nurse becomes obsessed with Sofia’s husband. The two women reemerge from their brokenness through their respective reflective journeys. Sofia lives a privileged life and has love, the nurse does not. Yet it is the nurse and her desires and dreams that drive the narrative. Reiza beautifully portrays her journey who after months of delusions, doubt, anger, fury, and desperation, finally comes to term with her past trauma. Though occasionally tedious, this smart and poignant novel beautifully conveys the resilience of two complex women.

  1. I’ve never heard of this book before, I’m usually wary of self-published fiction but this sounds pretty interesting. Thanks, I might have to give it a try. 🙂
