Memorial Drive

A Daughter's Memoir

Natasha Trethewey

"Memorial Drive" is a memoir that delves into how the author's teenage years were upended when her former stepfather killed her mother. Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey shares her journey through grief and explores how this traumatic event shaped her as an artist. She reflects on her own upbringing as a "child of miscegenation" in Mississippi and her mother's history in the deeply segregated South. This book is an intimate portrayal of pain, loss, and resilience.
