Description
From one of our most astute cultural observers, a piercing memoir about a family's breakup, and about the need to both hold onto and distance ourselves from the people and events that shape us. North Carolina in the 1950s and 1960s: A child surrounded by elderly grandparents, aunts, and uncles, Malcolm Jones finds himself underfoot in a bad marriage. His father, charming but careless about steady work, is often gone from home, often drunk; his mother, a schoolteacher and faded Southern belle, clings to the past while hungering for respectability and stability. Jones vividly describes their faltering marriage as it plays out against larger cracks in society-the convulsions of desegregation and a popular culture that threaten the settled life of his family. But he also recalls idyllic times, and the ordinary, easy moments of an otherwise fraught childhood-each experience offering a portal to someplace else, in himself and in the wider world. With a rich evocation of time and place, a darkly humorous, often bittersweet candor, and a rare depth of feeling, Jones gives us the fundamental stories of life-where he comes from, who he was, and who he has become.
