Family Scandals captures with precision the feelings of an adolescent girl in the nether–zone between child and adult, where men respond with lust and women deny or denounce budding sexuality. At this stage, girls learn to internalize the duplicities that compose the social script prescribed for women, duplicities defined as sane and normal by the dynamics of family life.

Sharon H. Nelson’s first book of poems, A Broken Vessel, was published in 1972. Her sixth, The Work of Our Hands, was shortlisted for the 1992 QSPELL A.M. Klein Poetry Prize. Her poetry has been widely anthologized, and her essays about gender and writing are often reprinted. She lives in Montreal.
