Adrienne Brodeur with Danya Kukafka
Adrienne Brodeur was 14 when her mother, Malabar, began a covert affair with a close family friend. Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is her account of loving and trying to protect an imperfect mother. An extraordinary book, Wild Game is a story of survival and of facing the truth of our relationships.
"A searing, indelible memoir of an extraordinary mother and her equally extraordinary daughter. Among Adrienne Brodeur's many achievements in Wild Game--beautiful prose, a riveting story, elegantly told--what I found most moving is the love threaded through every page of this unforgettable book."-- Dani Shapiro.
Adrienne Brodeur, co-founder with Francis Ford Coppola of Zoetrope, is executive director of Aspen Words. She will appear in conversation with Seattle novelist Danya Kukafka, author of Girl in Snow (Simon and Schuster).
