A book of great ambition, The Yellow House tells a hundred years of her family and their relationship to home in a neglected area of one of America's most mythologized cities. This is the story of a mother's struggle against a house's entropy, and that of a prodigal daughter who left home only to reckon with the pull that home exerts, even after the Yellow House was wiped off the map after Hurricane Katrina. A brilliant memoir of place, class, race, the seeping rot of inequality, and the internalized shame that often follows. Author: Sarah M. Broom. Paperback; 384 pages.
