How It All Began
LION TAMER MEMOIR II: How It All Began opens on a crowded dinner table scene in Seattle, 1955. The reader is swept into the mind and heart of Marie, the sixth of ten children, an enterprising, anxious child who finds herself on her own to grow in deepening love through childhood challenges: a dad who roars and belittles her mom, who begins travelling for months at a time and has roving hands when he does come home; a mom who disappears first into the newspaper and later into causes; a war on TV every night; Marie’s obsessive love for strangers; the relief addiction provides; and the power of self-harm. What Marie really needs and finds is freedom. But at what cost?
