HOLD STILL: A MEMOIR WITH PHOTOGRAPHS -- SALLY MANN. Little, Brown and Company, Boston, 2015. 496 pp. with 418 ills. (90 col.). 25 x 17 cm. LC 2014-959584 ISBN 9780316247764 In English.
Publisher's description: In this groundbreaking book, a unique interplay of narrative and image, Mann's preoccupation with family, race, mortality, and the storied landscape of the American South are revealed as almost genetically predetermined, written into her DNA by the family history that precedes her. Sorting through boxes of family papers and yellowed photographs she finds more than she bargained for: "deceit and scandal, alcohol, domestic abuse, car crashes, bogeymen, clandestine affairs, dearly loved and disputed family land... racial complications, vast sums of money made and lost, the return of the prodigal son, and maybe even bloody murder." In lyrical prose and startlingly revealing photographs, she crafts a totally original form of personal history that has the page-turning drama of a great novel but is firmly rooted in the fertile soil of her own life.
