In her memoir, Goodbye, Sweet Girl: A Story of Domestic Violence and Survival, author Kelly Sundberg explores domestic violence from the inside. Sundberg describes her memoir as “the story of how I ended up in an abusive marriage, why I stayed as long as I did, and why I eventually left.” Sundberg also explores her childhood in Salmon, Idaho, an isolated mountain community, which, like her marriage, was a place of deep contradictions and a place of magical beauty riven by secret brutality. Elle named Goodbye, Sweet Girl as one of the 30 best books to read last summer. Her essay, "It Will Look Like a Sunset," was selected for inclusion in The Best American Essays 2015. Other essays have appeared in Guernica, Gulf Coast, The Rumpus, Denver Quarterly, and Slice. Sundberg has a doctorate degree in creative nonfiction from Ohio University, where she is currently a postdoctoral research fellow.
