Educated into extreme fundamentals: Mormonism. Survivalism. White supremacy. Patriarchal preponderance: Tara Westover grows up to not trust herself, even when her active, agile mind accesses great achievement, and carries her far from her family's isolated, Idahoan mountaintop home. Written in a muted, often numbing prose, Westover's memoir replays those extremes' most emotive scenes, recomposing her memories as if as one-acts, staged in their shaping of her character's nature, and so scripted by her having directed them, her self emerging through each script's enactment. ~ Reviewed by Ray Marsocci
