Y’s Pick: Wild Game by Adrienne Brodeur

0

When Brodeur was fourteen, her capricious, magnetic mother Malabar enlisted her help in covering up an extramarital affair she had with a close family friend. “Nothing,” Brodeur writes in her lush memoir, “made me feel more loved than making my mother happy, and any means justified that end.” Devastating and delectable (and just a bit detestable), this debut chronicling the affair and its aftermath is a captivating hymn to the costs and comforts of daughterhood.
