Wild Game: My Mother, Her Love, and Me

I’m not sure where I learned about Wild Game by Adrienne Brodeur, but any good memoir is usually right up my alley. This one dropped you right into the action and we learn about Brodeaur’s mother’s affair in the first chapter. Brodeur’s mother makes her, as a fourteen-year-old, complicit and even a confidant in this affair. It’s hard to look away and not want to know how this affects her life. It was an enjoyable read and I devoured it in one night, but there was something flat and distant about the narration, which left me a little cold. Nevertheless, the story was intriguing and devastating at the same time. It’s well worth a read.
