“Memphis” by Tara M. Stringfellow is at its core a book about family. The family we’re born into, as far as our blood ties, but then also family, from the perspective of community, the neighborhoods we grow up in, the environments in which we’re raised and how those relationships and interactions shape us as people. At the center of the novel are four female characters who are related by blood through mother daughter and sister sister relationships.
