Summary, etc.:
A NEW YORK TIMESIn 1961, Sarah M. Broomâs mother Ivory Mae bought a shotgun house in the then-promising neighborhood of New Orleans East and built her world inside of it. It was the height of the Space Race and the neighborhood was home to a major NASA plantâthe postwar optimism seemed assured. Widowed, Ivory Mae remarried Sarahâs father Simon Broom; their combined family would eventually number twelve children. But after Simon died, six months after Sarahâs birth, the Yellow House would become Ivory Maeâs thirteenth and most unruly child. A book of great ambition, Sarah M. Broomâs The Yellow HouseThe Yellow House is a brilliant memoir of place, class, race, the seeping rot of inequality, and the internalized shame that often follows. It is a transformative, deeply moving story from an unparalleled new voice of startling clarity, authority, and power.
