HOW REDEMPTION IS FOUND

Down The Hall Book Club reads An Untamed State by Roxane Gay > SEPTEMBER 15


"An Untamed State is remarkable for a trauma book, in that it shows that the recovery is almost as difficult as the trauma itself. In Miri's life, there is only 'the before' and 'the after,' and the after doesn't offer easy redemption, but nightmares, cold sweats and alienation from the people who love her. 'We have a really stylized understanding of trauma in popular culture,' Gay says, 'where something bad happens and the person has a period of mourning or coping and then they get better.' "
-- from Annalisa Quinn's profile on NPR Books



The September 2014 DTHBC selection is An Untamed State by Roxane Gay, published by Atlantic Grove, 2014.
