Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me

Wow. Could not stop reading this electrifying, sometimes shocking memoir. I cried throughout the entire end. Brodeur is a master at atmosphere and scene setting, and I felt fully IN Cape Cod, in their Boston suburb mansion, in NYC, in San Diego. I felt the sun. Smelled the salt. And Brodeur does throughout this amazing story what I want in all books of all genres, she gives gives gives all the wonderful sensory aspects of food. The sizzle and smell of garlic frying in butter, so on. So many examples. I seriously love this book, which is both beautiful and heartbreaking. I would read anything written by Brodeur, with hopes she turns her immeasurable talents to a full length fiction should she wish. This will make my 2020 Top Reads for sure, and it’s already a shoe-in for the select few that make it into my year end dinner of top reads for close friends. It’s that good.
