It Runs in the Family is amemoirof faith and willful ignorance, truths and secrets, rural and urban labor, and fire: fire as both knowledge and destructive force.Richard Manning was raised on a piece of farmland in Michigan, in a working- class family of Christian fundamentalists.Manning'sfather was a jack of many trades: farmer, carpenter, builder, power lineman, factory worker, small businessman. His mother concealed her own troubled childhood beneath a religious faith that explained away uncertainty, illness, and tragedy.Manning grew up learning how to work and what to believe---but came to understand his family’s seemingly-normal facade as a mask for troubling secrets. It Runs in the Family is the story of Manning’s journey away from his family, one that ranges from their Michigan farm to the fire-ravaged wilderness of Montana, and finally to a remote village in Panama, where he comes to pursue a past he had vowed to leave behind. Linking his ownlife with the largerstory of his family, the land they inhabited, andthe right-wing fundamentalist politics gaining ground in America, Richard Manning offers a singular memoir.
