Low Road, The
"This is the story I have been writing for my
whole life. With my life," writes Valerie Miner
in this elegant and compassionate account of her
family's migration from Edinburgh's tenements
across the world. The Low Road explores location
and dislocation in a large, poverty striken
Scottish family. Focusing on the life journeys
of her grandmother, her mother, and herself,
Miner searches for truth about family members,
unveiling family secrets and missing histories.
This powerful and moving memoir is a dramatic
passage through poverty, immigration, and
national and sexual identity.
"Though her story is deeply emotional, filled with sad losses, including the loss of her mother, Miner's reticence and lack of self-indulgence have helped her to dignify the narrative with humor, to focus on the larger questions, to work past blame and to treat her Scottish family - especially her mother's 'extraordinary, ordinary life' - with compassion and respect."
