Long Live The Tribe Of Fatherless Girls : A Memoir

Author(s): T Kira Madden
T Kira Madden's debut is a memoir about coming of age as a queer, biracial teenager within the fierce contradictions of Boca Raton, Florida, a place where cult-like privilege, shocking social and racial disparities, rampant white-collar crime, and powerfully destructive standards of beauty hide in plain sight. As a child in Florida, T Kira Madden lived a life of extravagance, but left to her own devices as both parents battled drug addiction, Kira navigated the perils of coming of age too quickly, and without guidance. With honesty and moving, lyrical prose, and spanning from 1960's Hawai'i to the nip and tuck rooms of 1990s Florida to the present-day struggle of a young woman in a culture of harassment, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls is the story of families both lost and found, unmade and rebuilt, crooked and beautiful. -- From statement provided by publisher.
