Murdering The Mom
Apr 29, 2012
Duff Brenna's childhood and coming of age are as harrowing as Maxim Gorki's, but where Gorki's vision calls for a Soviet revolution to free underclasses from the cycle of brutality, Brenna's celebrates our common humanity, complexity, and resilience, the revolution within. His accounts of being brutalized and loved by his stepfather are both horrific and comic. This is a memoir remarkable for its ironic acceptance of outrages....For a thorough interview with Brenna, see http://www.pifmagazine.com/2005/09/du...
