Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805044299, Hardcover)

Susan J. Miller's father's heroin addiction was only one of the unacknowledged pathologies that scarred her childhood, examined in Never Let Me Down with remarkable reflectiveness. Miller recognizes the seductiveness of the pleasure her father experienced listening to jazz and doing drugs even as she exposes the havoc it wrought on her overwhelmed mother and desperate brother, who vented his rage by beating and sexually abusing his sister. Never Let Me Down could be a Grand Guignol, complete with a truly horrific flock of relatives; instead it's a quiet chronicle of suffering endured and overcome.
