As Manning's riveting debut begins, a 35-year-old white woman lies secluded in her home, recovering from a violent assault by her husband that has nearly taken her life. A poignant anatomy of a marriage undone by the pressure of fame and the struggle for identity, "Whitegirl" marks the arrival of a significant new voice in contemporary fiction.
