Overview

Two or Three Things I Know for Sure by Dorothy Allison

Bastard Out of Carolina, nominated for the 1992 National Book Award for fiction, introduced Dorothy Allison as one of the most passionate and gifted writers of her generation. Now, in Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, she takes a probing look at her family's history to give us a lyrical, complex memoir that explores how the gossip of one generation can become legends for the next.

Illustrated with photographs from the author's personal collection, Two or Three Things I Know for Sure tells the story of the Gibson women — sisters, cousins, daughters, and aunts — and the men who loved them, often abused them, and, nonetheless, shared their destinies. With luminous clarity, Allison explores how desire surprises and what power feels like to a young girl as she confronts abuse.

As always, Dorothy Allison is provocative, confrontational, and brutally honest. Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, steeped in the hard-won wisdom of experience, expresses the strength of her unique vision with beauty and eloquence.

I am horribly upset that I paid $10.99 for 52 page! She is a beautiful writer but 52 pages?

this book made you relive her other novel...because she lived it. pretty frank reading.
Crowyhead on LibraryThing 12 days ago
This slim autobiographical volume packs a lot of punch. With photographs and a storyteller-ish quality, Allison reflects on her impoverished childhood and on the love-hate relationship she long had with the other women in her family. The overall effect is to leave the reader somewhat in awe of the strength that Allison and the other women in her family had in the face of incredible hardship.
