Burn Down the Ground book Kambri Crews (CODA author)

BURN DOWN THE GROUND: A MEMOIR by Kambri Crews — An unflinching, emotional
memoir by the hearing daughter of two deaf parents, about the rampant
dysfunction of her rural Texas childhood and the searing violence that left
her father serving a twenty-year prison sentence.

Successful New York producer and publicist Kambri Crews always knew that her
childhood was unusual– she spent much of it in a tin shack deep with her
family in the woods of Texas. But when, in her early 30s, her charismatic
and adored father is sentenced to twenty years in prison for stabbing and
nearly killing his girlfriend, she must confront for the first time his
violent, destructive behavior. In her brutally honest, completely
captivating memoir, Crews struggles to forge a relationship with her
incarcerated father and revisits her unconventional family and the long road
she took to her current life.

Available for pre-order on, and many other
online outlets. In stores February 28, 2012.
