On a wet Tuesday morning in 1996, Wendy Reed’s vehicle hydroplaned, crossed an interstate median, and crashed into an oncoming automobile, whose motive force used to be killed. even though Reed and her son have been unhurt and Reed first and foremost defined herself as "fine," within the months that she will be engulfed in a typhoon of guilt and recrimination, in addition to jarring criminal complaints over the accident.In An unintentional Memoir, Reed, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, issues the lens at herself and explores that twist of fate and a succession of non-public reviews via truth and fiction. informed from strange views and in hugely figurative language, the tales draw at the Southern Gothic culture of Flannery O’Connor and have darkish humor, unsuitable humans, disastrous occasions, and moments of religious grace. Taken jointly, this selection of intentionally fragmented essays and brief tales develop into a meditation on topics equivalent to paintings, relatives duties, dying, and elevating a child.
