|Summary:|| Alexandra Styron's parents, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Sophie's Choice and his political activist wife Rose, were for half a century, leading players on the world's cultural stage. Alexandra was raised under both the halo of her father's brilliance and the long shadow of his troubled mind. From Styron's youth and precocious literary debut to the triumphs of his best-known books and on through his spiral into depression, Reading My Father portrays the epic sweep of an American artist's life. It is also a tale of filial love, beautifully written with humor, compassion, and grace.
