Fiction. Poetry. Hybrid Genre. Winner of the Noemi Book Prize in Prose. ALMONDS ARE MEMBERS OF THE PEACH FAMILY looks at the ways humans process violence, history, identity, and intergenerational trauma. Centering upon the making of a crazy quilt, it weaves together oral history, public record, images, scientific findings, diary entries, statistical data, and memory with few sutures.
