In a memoir that sparked a national outcry of #MeTooInceste, a memoir that the New York Times called “breathtaking”, Camille Kouchner finds the courage to tell the profoundly impactful story of incest and abuse within her own family—a story that she buried within herself for over a decade. In THE FAMILIA GRANDE: A Memoir Kouchner challenges the guilt and trauma that she carried for years, as well as the wider societal forces which have allowed powerful men to escape the consequences of their sexual misconduct for generations.
