Barbara Robinette Moss: "Fierce" (Scribner)
In the acclaimed memoir "Change Me Into Zeus's Daughter," Barbara Robinette Moss described the abuse and neglect her family suffered at the hands of her alcoholic father during her poverty-stricken childhood in rural Alabama. In her new memoir, we see her psychic injuries festering rather than fading as she enters adulthood. The author talks with Diane about how she finally escaped a life of fear and suffering.
