Affliction tells in vivid imagery the childhood of Laurie, whose father eventually comes out as gay amidst a marriage that led to four children. Laurie always had a special connection to her father and her childhood is described in the washed out sunshine of old home movies to leave us looking for the signs she believed she missed.

The passage contains photos from Laurie's actual childhood, which sets the stage, but the jacket cover leaves some to be desired in that regard. Overall, I can't wait to read more!
