Memorial Drive

DUE IN JULY: Former U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey's memoir Memorial Drive not only memorializes her own mother but also the thousands of women killed by domestic abusers. Trethewey has captured her grief on the page with heartbreaking clarity and created a stunning portrait of an intelligent, beautiful woman trapped in a marriage with a wreck of a man with untreated mental illness. Trethewey  bravely weaves themes of racism and the long-term effects of  emotional and physical trauma into a harrowing tapestry. And Memorial Drive's publication couldn't have come at a more poignant time, with many vulnerable women people sheltering in place with their abusers. Recommended by Kelly
