A memoir this fearless is bound to change readers' lives. In Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls, T Kira Madden fearlessly retreads her childhood, and crystallizes the moments that made her — for better or for worse. From the start of her memory, T Kira had to be the “parent” to her parents, a pill-addicted woman and a businessman who would eventually be arrested for fraud. In a series of emotionally honest and incisive essays, Madden describes what it took to survive this journey "out." She turns her strange childhood into a page-turner.
