The Way We Weren't

by Jill Talbot

To say that Jill Talbot steps into the controversial borderlands between fiction and non fiction with The Way We Weren't is a vast understatement. It is more like she plunges into them off the fifty-meter springboard, doing three somersaults and a half gainer on the way down. This gut wrenching tale of abandonment (though it is never perfect clear who was the abandoner, who the abandonee) makes us ask giant, soul-bending questions, like 'Does anyone ever know anyone?' and 'Are we always the creators of our own misery?' A brave story of one woman's fight to survive, most of all, her own proclivities. — Pam Houston, author of Contents May Have Shifted
