About the Book:
A daughter’s tale of living in the thrall of her magnetic, complicated mother, and the chilling consequences of her complicity.
On a hot July night on Cape Cod when Adrienne was fourteen, her mother, Malabar, woke her at midnight with five simple words that would set the course of both of their lives for years to come: Ben Souther just kissed me.
Adrienne instantly became her mother’s confidante and helpmate, blossoming in the sudden light of her attention, and from then on, Malabar came to rely on her daughter to help orchestrate what would become an epic affair with her husband’s closest friend. The affair would have calamitous consequences for everyone involved, impacting Adrienne’s life in profound ways, driving her into a precarious marriage of her own, and then into a deep depression. Only years later will she find the strength to embrace her life—and her mother—on her own terms.
Wild Game is a brilliant, timeless memoir about how the people close to us can break our hearts simply because they have access to them, and the lies we tell in order to justify the choices we make. It’s a remarkable story of resilience, a reminder that we need not be the parents our parents were to us.

This book club kit is wonderful. I like how their are pictures included that add to the story, allowing you to put faces to the people the author writes about. I think the interview, questions, and recipes really add something extra to a book club gathering. It also helps the facilitator plan out the activities.
Another great resource for anyone wanting to start or contribute to an existing book club. I love how the discussion guide is, and how it even incorporates ideas from the author herself. The q&a section is always insightful and a great look into how comes to write the book and what their process is.
This kit even has recipes includes which, while also being true to the book, are a fun activity for a book club to take part in.
I loved the snapshots, and also the trivia questions, these were a nice surprise to find at the end of the kit.
All in all a wonderful resource for all book clubs, full of insightful questions to pose and also fun activities to plan.
This is what I want when I get a book club kit! It has everything you need, the questions, a quiz, author interview and so much more!
I love that they give you recipes but also blank cards so you can share recipes with you book club!
I also love when they include what I like to call a souvenir with the book mark but it also included book recommendations for books that inspired Adrienne Brodeur and what to read next. All in all a great book club kit!
