The Kiss: A Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this extraordinary memoir, one of the best young writers in America today transforms into a work of art the darkest passage imaginable in a young woman's life: an obsessive love affair between father and daughter that began when Kathryn Harrison, twenty years old, was reunited with a parent whose absence had haunted her youth.

Exquisitely and hypnotically written, like a bold and terrifying dream, The Kiss is breathtaking in its honesty and in the power and beauty of its creation.A story both of taboo and of family complicity in breaking taboo, The Kiss is also about love — about the most primal of love triangles, the one that ensnares a child between mother and father.

From the Hardcover edition.
