Description
(Winner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction and a finalist for the National Book Award, as well as a New York Times and Washington Post Notable Book of 2015) Photographer Sally Mann has repeatedly challenged our expectations with her uncompromising, emotionally vibrant imagery. So it should come as no surprise that her memoir, with its rich interplay of images, quotes, and her vivid descriptions, is every bit as extraordinary. Her abiding concerns—family, race, mortality, and the storied landscape of the South—seem almost genetically predetermined, as she uncovers here for us boxes of family papers and yellowed photos revealing, in her words, "deceit and scandal, alcoholism, domestic abuse, car crashes, bogeymen, clandestine affairs, dearly loved and disputed family land ... racial complications, vast sums of money made and lost, the return of the prodigal son, and maybe even bloody murder."

"A wild ride of a memoir. Visceral and visionary. Fiercely beautiful. My kind of true adventure."—Patti Smith

"Mann demonstrates a talent for storytelling that rivals her talent for photography. The book is riveting, ravishing—diving deep into family history to find the origins of art. I couldn't take my eyes off of it."—Ann Patchett

"One would not need to know Sally Mann's remarkable work as a photographer to be swept up in her memoir Hold Still, which draws upon a family history so rife with jaw-dropping drama that it could provide the grist for a dozen novels. With prodigious intellect and a telling instinct for the exact detail that will reveal character or throw it into question, Mann delves into the treacherous territory of memory, mesmerized by the relentless dance of beauty and decay. In doing so, she manifests in prose the acuity of seeing that has propelled her to the top rank of contemporary artists."—Andrew Solomon
