The following quotations are important at various points of the story (Scribner, New York, 2005):

(page 3; This is the striking opening line that immediately differentiates between the authors world and that of her parents.)


2. In my mind, Dad was perfect, although he did have what Mom called a bit of a drinking situation.

(pg. 23; Here Jeannette begins her description of the relationship with her father.) .........


......... 23. After Maureens arraignment, the entire family becomes enraged with each other, giving vent to all the years of hurt and anger, unloading his or hurt accumulated grievances and blaming the others for allowing the most fragile one of us to break into pieces.

(pg. 276; This occurs after Maureens trial.)
