As ever­y­bo­dy knows, you can’t real­ly lea­ve the fami­ly roots behind. You can run away, try to escape, but most­ly it does not work. The fami­ly and its histo­ry are just part of your life. And when Natha­ni­el Grann dedi­ca­tes his book to his father, mother, ste­pfa­ther and step­mo­ther, one can ima­gi­ne that the­re was a lot going on at home.

When the pho­to­gra­pher, alre­ady grown-up, spent ano­t­her three years in his mother’s hou­se, he con­fron­ted him­s­elf with the stran­ge fur­ni­tu­re and fur­nis­hings, the some­ti­mes pecu­li­ar pre­fe­ren­ces of the mothers and fathers, the Christ­mas visi­tors — the beau­ti­ful and the pain­ful memo­ries.

Natha­ni­el Grann’s book is a con­fes­si­on. In spi­te of all the alie­na­ti­on, he unders­tood: This is whe­re I come from, the­se are my peop­le. They dress dif­fer­ent­ly than me, they may live and think dif­fer­ent­ly than I will once, but the­re they are and I want to deal with it. And he does – cri­ti­cal­ly, direct­ly and iro­ni­cal­ly, but also affec­tio­na­te­ly, mild­ly and humo­rous­ly.

… love the one you’re with.
