The book wrestles with the South’s history through the lens of her life and the life of her mother, who was murdered by Trethewey’s former stepfather. ​“Memorial Drive” dives deep into a shared human experience of sudden loss and absence, but also into the enduring ripple effects of white racism and domestic abuse in the American South. Trethewey is a former creative writing professor at Emory whose papers are in the Rose Library archives, where Magee was previously director.
