In Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, Dorothy Allison takes a probing look at her family's history to give us a lyrical, complex memoir that explores how the gossip of one generation can become legends for the next.
Illustrated with photographs from the author's personal collection, Two or Three Things I Know for Sure tells the story of the Gibson women - sisters, cousins, daughters, and aunts - and the men who loved them, often abused them, and, nonetheless, shared their destinies.

This slim little book can be knocked out in nothing flat, but it's rich enough in detail, profundity, and raw emotion to stick in your mind for the rest of your life. This is an excellent piece of women's rhetoric that discusses Dorothy Allison's life (no knowledge of Dorothy Allison is required to appreciate this book), life in the south, poverty, rape, gender constructs, and the social significance of beauty. Dorothy's voice is so beautiful and relevant that you will not want to put this book down.
