Transcending the Legacy
In Transcending the Legacy Nancy Brown continues the impassioned and eloquent search for self-understanding that she began in her memoir Facing Life. Her subject is once again the life-long effects of the sexual abuse that she suffered as a very young child, the decades of addictive behaviour that nearly destroyed her, and the recovery process that has been the central project of her life in recent years. Her impulse is again autobiographical, but instead of a chronological narrative we are given incident-based meditations in which she analyzes the strategies, many of them futile and counterproductive, but the most recent of them hearteningly effective, by which her cruelly damaged self has struggled to find a way to live.
Nancy Brown is an author from Kingston, Ontario. Facing Life is her first book with Penumbra Press. Her second book, Transcending the Legacy, also published by Penumbra Press, was released in September, 2009.
