Wild Game is so fantastical that it's hard to fathom as memoir. It is full of family drama and Brodeur expertly builds the narrative tension within her family and between two families, you're not sure how it will end. It reads as a thriller! In addition, it's difficult to understand how her mother can be so self-centered and narcissistic. If you're a fan of Glass Castle, you would enjoy this novel in which Brodeur's mother holds her captive, complicit, and as a confidant. Brodeur struggles with this behavior and diligently works to stop this manipulative cycle with her own daughter. I really enjoyed Gretchen Rubin's podcast with her: https://gretchenrubin.com/podcast-episode/259-book-club-wild-game-adrienne-brodeur
