Bloomsbury presents Memorial Drive by Natasha Trethewey, read by Natasha Trethewey.
Natasha Trethewey was born in Mississippi in the '60s to a Black mother and a White father. When she was six, Natasha’s parents divorced and she and her mother moved to Atlanta. There, her mother met the man who would become her second husband and Natasha’s stepfather.
While she was still a child, Natasha decided that she would not tell her mother about what her stepfather did when she was not there: the quiet bullying and control, the games of cat and mouse. Her mother kept her own secrets, secrets that grew harder to hide as Natasha came of age.
When Natasha was 19 and away at college, her stepfather shot her mother dead on the driveway outside their home.
With penetrating insight and a searing voice that moves from the wrenching to the elegiac, Memorial Drive is a compelling and searching look at a shared human experience of sudden loss and absence and a piercing glimpse at the enduring ripple effects of white racism and domestic abuse. Luminous, urgent and visceral, it cements Trethewey’s position as one of the most important voices in America today.

Parfois on ressent le sentiment d'avoir fait la tour de la littérature, des essais, des histoires de la vie des gens.
Et puis arrivent des ouvrages comme celui-ci.
J'ai écouté l'auteure lire son propre récit, et je crois bien n'avoir jamais rien entendu de si beau et si touchant.
