Survival …

… In 'Memorial Drive,' A Daughter Unearths And Remembers Trauma : NPR. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

The memoir, out this week, is a meditation on Trethewey's own life as well as those of her mother and grandmother — an interrogation of the self and of family history haunted, in large part, by the abuse Trethewey and her mother both suffered at the hands of her stepfather. It ended, ultimately, in the murder of Trethewey's mother by her step-father when Trethewey was 19.
