Disgust: A Memoir (Paperback)
"When, in my twenties, I came out to my parents as a lesbian, I became an object of their disgust. As a result, I worked to eliminate disgust from my repertoire of emotions."
In this hybrid memoir, novelist Stephanie Grant works to make sense of three generations of female self-disgust in her family while considering how it challenges both the American ideal of equality and our real-life experiences of intimacy. Disgust: A Memoir is funny, tender, and rigorous in its exploration of how the most difficult emotion functions both in our private lives and our collective imaginations.
