The Blurry Years
"Kriseman’s assured and affecting debut follows Callie from young childhood through her itinerant teenage years as she and her unpredictable, alcoholic mother, Jeanie, constantly attempt to restart and better their lives... The novel’s complicated mother/daughter relationship is provocative and richly developed, and Jeanie is an unforgettable, complex character... Kriseman’s is a new voice to celebrate.”
