Description - Night Navigation by Ginnah Howard

Through the four seasons, "Night Navigation" takes us into the deranged, darkly humorous world of the addict - from break-your-arm dealers to boot-camp rehabs to Rumi-quoting NA sponsors. Al-Anon tells Del to 'let go'; NAMI tells her to 'hang on'. Mark cannot find a way to live in this world. Del cannot stop trying to rescue him. And yet, during this long year's night, through relapse and despair, they see flares of hope as Mark and Del fitfully, painfully try to steer toward the light. Told in the alternating voices of an addict and his mother, this riveting novel adds new depth to our understanding and our literature of parents and their troubled children.

Author Biography - Ginnah Howard

GINNAH HOWARD taught high school English for twenty-seven years and didn't consider becoming a writer until her mid-forties. After several attempts at writing a memoir, she began a novel, Night Navigation. While many of the major events of Night Navigation actually took place, when the time came to speak in the voice of a thirty-seven-year-old man she relied on invention to bring his interior world to life. Her work has appeared in the Portland Review, Permafrost, and A Room of One's Own, and has twice been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
