T Kira Madden's widely acclaimed, unflinchingly honest memoir of trauma, privilege, displacement, and forgiveness, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls tells the story of a young woman mourning the loss of her father while excavating her glittery South Florida girlhood for truths that fully reframe her reality. Singularly compassionate, funny, and precise, Madden's unforgettable debut is about families of blood and affinity, both lost and found, unmade and rebuilt, crooked and beautiful.
