When Nicole Harkin was nine-years-old, she learned her father was comatose 120 miles away from home. And, then the hospital nurse informed Nicole’s mother that another woman was also visiting their father every day, whenever the family wasn’t there. That is when everything tilted: her parent’s marriage, her family, and her understanding of the truth. Tilting: A Memoir chronicles this chapter of Harkin’s life and the after effects using both pathos and humor. Kirkus Reviews credits Harkin with doing “a fine job of mining her childhood for sweet stories that contrast with the sour turn that her parents' marriage takes."
