Description:

"ASTONISHINGLY MOVING...The Family Heart is a tough and challenging work, for it reminds us that empathy is a humble but radical virtue, if lived." --USA Today " I'm gay.' Every day, parents around the world hear those words from their children. Most are utterly unprepared for them. By writing The Family Heart, Robb Forman Dew has done such parents an extraordinary service." --The Washington Post Book World "TOUCHINGLY WRITTEN." --The Boston Globe "At the heart of this memoir lies a true epiphany: the author's sudden, galvanizing awareness of the suicidal consequences of homophobia. It is a chilling moment, and it is described with a writer's eloquence and a mother's rage....Dew's intense imagination, combined with her ignorance of homosexuality, was as much a hindrance as a help, and it is to her credit that she has recorded the occasionally wacky assumptions and painful readjustments of her own odyssey with such care and humor." --The New Yorker "POETIC, HONEST." --Fort Worth Star-Telegram "Eloquent and absorbing...The true testament of Mrs. Dew and her husband as parents, and the most powerful moments of this inspiring memoir, occur when they come out' to their community as parents of a gay child....Though Mrs. Dew imparts a lot of self-gained wisdom in this perceptive and beautifully articulated story, in the end she realizes she has something she has always had--a strong loving family and two good sons." --The Dallas Morning News "AMEN FROM ANY MOTHER, EVERY MOTHER." --Anna Quindlen The New York Times

The novels of Robb Forman Dew deal primarily with the nature of relationships in contemporary family life. Dale Loves Sophie to Death (1981), a winner of the American Book Award in 1982, inspired a sequel, Fortunate Lives (1992). Her third novel, The Time of Her Life, was published in 1984. Dew has also published a non-fiction work about her own family, Family Heart: A Memoir of When Our Son Came Out; and a cookbook, A Southern Thanksgiving: Recipes and Musings for a Manageable Feast (1992). Dew, born in 1946, was raised in the South and credits time spent living with her grandfather, John Crowe Ransom, poet and critic, as an influence on her writing style. She is married to historian Charles Dew, and has two sons.
