T Kira Madden with Kimberly King Parsons
Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls (Bloomsbury) is essayist T Kira Madden’s strong-voiced memoir of coming of age. “Madden perfectly captures the ache of a child trying to find her place. You may not be a competitive equestrian, a Floridian, or the mixed race child of two parents who struggle with addiction; you may have never fallen in love with another woman; but everyone who has ever longed for more love will understand.” – Rowan Hisayo Buchanan.
“Harrowing and beautiful. What seems most miraculous about Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls is the way T Kira Madden forges out of such achingly difficult material a memoir as frank and funny and powerful and surprising as this, her utterly gorgeous debut.” – Lauren Groff.
Joining T Kira Madden onstage in conversation is Kimberly King Parsons, whose book of stories, Black Light (Vintage) is due out this summer.
