Alexandra Styron is the daughter of major novelist William Styron (1925-2006), an author who sparked almost as many controversies as he won awards. A novelist herself, Alexandra (All the Finest Girls) knew her father not just as the literary giant Sophie's Choice and The Confessions of Nat Turner, but also as a brilliant man tormented by alcohol-abetted depression. Her stories about growing up in the domain of her troubled father and her poet-activist mother possess an immediacy missing from author biographies.
