Synopsis

“Deeply, satisfyingly original. . . . Elegies is the literary equivalent of a hand grenade.”—Joanna Smith Rakoff, New York Times Book Review

Who are the people you’ll never forget? For Mary Murphy, there are five, eulogized here in an utterly unforgettable voice. Mary tells the story of her own life—her childhood spent trading one home and father figure for another, her efforts to track down her rebellious sister, and her winding search for purpose—through her experiences and encounters with the people who shaped her path. The result is an unconventional and moving story about identity, family, and belonging.
