Maisonneuve compares Sina Queyras to Faulkner

Review: Autobiography of Childhood
By Eric Muthrie
Maisonneuve
December 19 2011

Sina Queyras's Autobiography of Childhood dissects a family forever coming to terms with loss. Blending snappy observations on the banal everyday with affecting reflections on relationships, Autobiography traces the lives of the five Combal siblings and their father, from the childhood death of a brother to the impending loss of cancer-stricken sister Therese. The novel moves through six different characters' perspectives, each of whom takes a turn attacking Adel, the family's harsh matriarch.
