Insignificant Others is a work of non-fiction in the memoir genre. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by Peter Fleming. The book is a collection of various writings by the author in which they explore their life and their relationship with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder over the years. Told with a unique sense of poetry, the book aims to guide and support others who struggle with PTSD and similar afflictions by telling various tales and anecdotes that explore our place in the world and in history.

This book was a fascinating take on a memoir that constantly felt like it was moving seamlessly between frank and honest stories of the author's life, poetic recallings of parables to highlight the morals of these stories, and a self-help book showing readers how to apply the morals of these stories to their own lives. Peter Fleming is a unique writer with a diverse talent which he wastes no time in bringing to bear on this book, juggling with various styles and forms to tell his overarching story about life. Insignificant Others presents the reader with a world of writing, each presented in an intense yet manageable slice that can be dipped into then taken away, and considered before reaching for the next installment. The eclectic nature of the writing lends itself beautifully to the concept of the fractured and complex mind that can become broken by experiences. I’ve no doubt that anyone picking up this book will walk away with a perspective on their own life that will benefit them greatly.
