About this product
- DescriptionTracing four days - from the moment she gets the news that her mother has passed, to her burial - Nunez tells the haunting story of her lifelong struggle to cope with the consequences of the 'sterner stuff' of her parents' ambitions for their children and her mother's seemingly unbreakable conviction that displays of affection are t for everyday use. Written in exquisite prose by a writer the New York Times Book Review calls 'a master at pacing and plotting,' Not for Everyday Use is a page-turner that readers will find impossible to put down.
