Read full description of the books Overlay: A Tale of One Girl's Life in 1970s Las Vegas:Fans of The Glass Castle, The Liar's Club and Angela's Ashes will appreciate this award-winning tale of survival and resilience recorded in spare and convincing prose. This tale describes the turbulent childhood of the author in 1970s Las Vegas.
Born into an ongoing cycle of alcoholism and abandonment amidst fallen adults, Marlayna develops a powerful sense of self-preservation in contrast to the quirky people entrusted with her care. Her story explores the personalities of the bizarre characters who populate her life as she moves from home to home, parent to parent, family to family, ultimately becoming homeless at the age of fourteen.
Out of the resources of her remarkable childhood emerges an inner strength that will charm and captivate readers and remain in their consciousness long after the last page of her story has been turned.
"The language of gambling makes an interesting and recurrent motif throughout this memoir, asserting that it is only by chance that any one of us could have traveled this very same road. Decks are shuffled, hands are played. An ultimately uplifting, beautifully written, and inspiring memoir." - Fiona Edmonds
