At the heart of this superb family portrait lies a catastrophic event: the suicide at 15 of the author's younger brother. In quiet, luminous language, Finneran deftly interweaves past and present, showing how the long accumulation of love helps her family overcome its terrible loss.
From the Publisher:
In a poignant study of family loss and love, the author describes the suicide of her younger teenage brother, a gifted athlete and student, following a humiliation at school, and the impact of the loss on her family, whose remarkable love for one other helped them deal with the tragedy. Reader's Guide available. Reprint.
Annotation:
The family at the heart of this memoir didn't stand out in their St. Louis neighborhood, where many families seemed just like theirs: industrious, loving, close. So when the author's youngest brother committed suicide, it stood out vividly. This memoir recounts the way that death shattered the family and the way the family rebuilt itself in its wake.
