Sometimes to tell a secret, you first have to teach a lesson.

Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize, “How I Learned to Drive” by Paula Vogel is at once funny, terrifying, and heartbreaking in its portrayal of a disturbing relationship between a young girl and her much older uncle. Through sympathy and seduction, Vogel presents an unflinching look at “the gifts we receive from the people who have hurt us.”
