Présentation de l'éditeur
Autobiography of Us tells the story of Rebecca Madden and her reckless friend Alex Carrington - two women who, against a backdrop of white gloves and tinkling cocktail glasses in 1960s Pasadena, become fast friends and confidants. Over the years, as both girls' dreams change shape both struggle to define themselves against their mothers' expectations and against a nation on the verge of sweeping cultural change. One summer night, an act of betrayal will forever shake their friendship and define the course of their lives. Decades later, Rebecca looks back on her relationship with Alex, revealing the truths of that night and the years that follow, her life still irrevocably braided into another's. A bittersweet story of a decades-long bond, Sloss' debut is also a powerful portrait of love, loss, and two friends caught between repression and revolution. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .
