Implosion: Memoir of an Architect's Daughter delves into the life of visionary architect Woodie Garber and the collision of forces in the turbulent 1970s that caused his family to collapse. Soon after the family's move into Woodie's glass house, his need to control begins to strain normal bonds; and Elizabeth's first love, a young black man, triggers his until-then hidden racism. This haunting memoir describes his descent into madness and follows Elizabeth's inspiring journey to emerge from her abuse, gain understanding and freedom from her father's control, and go on to become a loving mother and a healer who helps others.
