Adrienne Brodeur’s memoir Wild Game explores her relationship with her mother, Malabar, who is beautiful, charismatic, and deeply lonely. Malabar starts an affair with a close family friend, and confides in her young daughter from the very beginning. These confidences are an endless source of stress for Adrienne, and over the years, their effect is corrosive. Longing for her mother’s attention and approval, Adrienne becomes as consumed with the illicit relationship as her mother, keeping secrets from family and friends for years. It’s only later that Brodeur begins to recognize the impact this shared secret had on the course of her life. Wild Game is an addicting glimpse into how people and events can shape our identities, and the emotional strength required to distance yourself from toxic relationships in order to discover your true self.
