"Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me" by Adrienne Brodeur

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐✰

A spell-binding memoir about the bizarre and complicated relationship between a mother and daughter. Malabar takes her 14 year old daughter Adrienne into her confidence about the affair that is kindling between her and her husband's best friend. Adrienne is thrilled to be entrusted with this very grown-up secret and basks in her mother's attention. It isn't until years later that she recognizes how destructive it was for her mother to burden a child with a secret of such magnitude. Beautifully written and loaded with scrumptious food descriptions!
