    Abandon Me: Memoirs by Melissa Febos

    Febos’ latest memoir Abandon Me is a raw and eloquent exploration of her Native American heritage, her relationship with substance abuse and an arduous affair with a married woman. Presented in essay form, each chapter reveals different accounts of the longing and distance felt throughout her life, including her relationship with her seafaring captain step-father and an addiction to heroin. Febos clings tightly to each relationship out of fear of solitude, repeating the same actions over and over but hoping for a different outcome. Her need for connection, with family, lovers, and especially, one's self, is a universal message to which each of us can relate.
