Kambri Crews

The author of Burn Down the Ground, a powerful and unflinching memoir, Kambri Crews takes readers on a journey through her unconventional childhood with deaf parents in rural Texas while trying to reconcile it to her present life -- one in which her father is serving a 20-year sentence in prison.

Not born deaf herself, Kambri was constantly caught in the middle of a power struggle with her saint-like mother and anger-infused father. Her presentations are a smart blend of brutal honesty and blunt humor as Crews explores her complicated bond with her father that begins with adoration, moves to fear, and finally arrives at understanding.
