    Paperback Description:
    “McFadden’s reissued second novel takes an unflinching look at the corrosive nature of alcoholism… This is not a story of easy redemption… McFadden writes candidly about the treacherous hold of addiction.” —Publishers Weekly

    “Riveting… So nicely avoids the sentimentality that swirls around the subject matter. I am as impressed by its structural strength as by the searing and expertly imagined scenes.” —Toni Morrison, author of Beloved

    The Warmest December is the incredibly moving story of one Brooklyn family and the alcoholism that determined years of their lives. Narrated by Kenzie Lowe, a young woman reminiscent of Jamaica Kincaid’s Annie John, as she visits her dying father and finds that choices she once thought beyond her control are very much hers to make.
