Emma Brockes - She Left Me the Gun: My Mother's Life Before Me

Colfax Avenue: Emma Brockes will discuss and sign her memoir She Left Me the Gun: My Mother's Life Before Me (Penguin), a chilling work of psychological suspense and forensic memoir-writing—the story of a young woman who reinvented herself so completely that her previous life seemed simply to vanish. It is a beguiling and unforgettable journey across generations and continents. She Left Me the Gun chronicles Brockes’s efforts to walk a knife-edge between understanding her mother’s unspeakable traumas and embracing the happiness she chose for her daughter.
