Summary
  • Moorer turns her lyrical storytelling powers to recount the events leading up to the moment that forever altered her own life and that of her older sister, Shelby, with whom she shares an unbreakable bond. Gorgeously written, this work delves into the meaning of inheritance and destiny, shame, and trauma--and how it is possible to carve out a safe place in the world despite it all
  • Mobile, Alabama, 1986. Moorer awakened by the sound of gunfire. On the front lawn, her father has shot and killed her mother before turning the gun on himself. That moment, which forever altered her own life and that of her older sister, Shelby, has never been far from her thoughts. Now, in her journey to understand the unthinkable, to parse the unknowable, she uses her lyrical storytelling powers to lay bare the memories and impressions that make a family, and that tear a family apart. -- adapted from jacket
