Maureen Fennessy Bousa Advocates for Mitchell S. Jackson Picture

Survival Math is a wild read….akin to walking down a narrow, dimly lit hallway and opening each door…to be surprised, shaken and shattered by the glimpses of real life behind each.

This ‘memoir’ takes the genre in a new direction…interspersing very personal narratives from a variety of perspectives…held together by the common thread of family.

The author holds out each intimate experience like an object…to be viewed and considered from many angles…applying various filters (historical, social, legal, etc.) …inviting the reader to wrestle with context of each…and the meaning to be gleaned from the experience of being in - and of - a family.

Grab this book…and it will grab you back!
