Praise For Missing: A Memoir…
“Missing is a profoundly brave memoir. Harrison has scoured the painful parts of her history to come to a complicated and compassionate understanding of her mother's fate. The book is as gripping as it is tragic, as moving as it is hot-to-the-touch. I couldn't put it down.”
–Robin Romm, author of The Mercy Papers and The Mother Garden
“Intensely personal...vivid on the page, [about] a mother who desperately loved and needed her children….A well-written account by a youthful author who is bouncing back from grief.” –Kirkus
“Lindsay Harrison and I happen to share the same last name, and we share something more important, the untimely deaths of our mothers when we were too young to withstand or even understand so profound a loss. Missing is a meticulous chronicle of shock and grief; the story that unfolds is one that that waits for nearly all of us, an account of what we fear and will someday face—this isn't a book just for daughters, but for sons, mothers, and fathers, as well.” —Kathryn Harrison
