I’ve not yet read Elizabeth Murray’s book Breaking Night.
An excerpt from Tara McKelvey’s article “Unsentimental Education” about Breaking Night:
Graham Greene once said that writers should keep a chip of ice in their hearts. It’s sound advice, with exceptions. Despite her generous portrayal of her troubled family life, Liz Murray succeeds as an author. Few parents would seem to have been more deserving of contempt than the ones who raised her.
