Abstract:

Daley Amory is eleven years old when her parents split up, leaving her torn between two worlds. While her mother thrives in her new life, her father loses control of his - often seeking solace in the contents of his liquor cabinet. But the more he drinks, the more unpleasant he becomes, and as Daley grows up she watches him transform from the charismatic father of her childhood, into a bitter and manipulative drunk. The older she gets, the more clearly she understands that any aspirations of her own will suffocate if she stays in her Waspish hometown, in thrall to her father's malign influence.
