NEWSHOUR BOOKSHELF - My Absolute Darling

"In 'My Absolute Darling,' a teen girl must survive her own father" PBS NewsHour 9/27/2017


SUMMARY:  Author Gabriel Tallent says he set out to tell the story of a young woman's fight for her own soul when the odds are "murderously against her."  In "My Absolute Darling," a 14-year-old girl knows survival in the wild, but little of social interactions, and lives with a charming but abusive father.  Tallent sits down with Jeffrey Brown to discuss his much-acclaimed debut novel.
