When she was 14, Adrienne Brodeur was awakened in the middle of the night by her beloved mother who confessed that a family friend had just kissed her. She wanted to pursue a romance with this man and needed young Adrienne's help in keeping it a secret. Adrienne felt special and important—her mother had chosen her to be her confidante. Thus began a years long situation that affected every aspect of Adrienne's life and which she recounts and untangles in Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me. We also talk about Aspen Words, parenting, memoir versus reality, Swatches, myths, cooking, dementia, career paths, creating Zoetrope with Francis Ford Coppola and so much more.
