Cultural conversations about two recent memoirs, Julie Barton’s Dog Medicine and Tara Westover’s Educated, miss an opportunity to address the most common form of domestic violence—sibling abuse—in favor, instead, of more palatable cultural narrative about depression and education. I argue that the memoirs themselves provide ample opportunity for such a conversation.
