From the Publisher
Annotation After her photographer-father's suicide, a young woman living in New York--diabetic, drug-addicted, and struggling to keep her marriage intact--finds she must cope with what she increasingly understands was her father's abuse of her when she was a child. When she sees photographs of herself at a retrospective of her father's work, a crisis is triggered.
