Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls: a memoir; T. Kira Madden
Bloomsbury Publishing - 2019
PART 1 - The Feels of Love
"My mother rescued a mannequin from the J.C. Penney dump when I was two years old. He was a full-bodied jewelry mannequin: fancy, distinguished. Those were the the words she used. Her father, my grandfather, worked the counter day and night, slinked antique chains and strands of jade across velvet placemats, and felt the mannequin did no work for his numbers; he's pau--done. Grandfather said this with both elbows bent, a chopping motion. The mannequin would have to go."
I love a good memoir and this one is getting excellent reviews - what do you think? Would you read more?
