About this book
Some of the Parts is about families--the ones we're born into, and the ones we create. In spare, evocative prose, T Cooper tells a compelling story of four. Long-divorced Arlene is lonely and pill-popping; only after her daughter leaves does she begin to decipher the intricacies of motherhood. Arlene's daughter Taylor is so simultaneously perfect yet useless, that she is paralyzed by her inevitable future. Arlene's brother Charlie faces the unexpected--even unwanted--prospect of surviving with terminal illness, and his best friend Isak is a gender "freak" to the world at large. These four fractured lives collide to re-forge an unlikely definition of family out of their respective exiles.
