Summary "Set in the bucolic, yet brutal South of his youth, My Mother?s House is a memoir by novelist David Armand. It recounts the young author?s early memories of being born to a schizophrenic mother, then given up for adoption, only to be raised in a home with an alcoholic and abusive step-father. In this sharply remembered portrait of the people and places that shaped him, Armand paints his seemingly negative experiences with a sympathetic and understanding brush. As the reader follows Armand through his childhood and later into adult life?when he is reunited with his mother after she makes a failed suicide attempt?a surprisingly new world of hope and possibility is rendered, despite the overwhelming challenges of this reunion."--Publisher's website
