The Blurry Years (eBook)
de Eleanor Kriseman
Sobre o livro
The Blurry Years is a powerful and unorthodox coming-of-age story from an assured new literary voice, featuring a stirringly twisted mother-daughter relationship set against the sleazy, vividly-drawn backdrop of late-seventies and early-eighties Florida.
Calliewho ages from six to eighteen over the course of the bookleads a scattered childhood, moving from cars to strangers houses to the sand-dusted apartments of the tourist towns that litter the Florida coastline.
Callies is a story about what its like to grow up too fast and absorb too much, to watch adults behaving badly; what its like to be simultaneously in thrall to and terrified of the mother who is the only family you've ever known, who moves you from town to town to leave her own mistakes behind.
With precision and poetry, Kriseman's moving tale of a young girl struggling to find her way in the world is potent, and, ultimately, triumphant.
