Summary
The mother of the bestselling memoirists Augusten Burroughs and John Elder Robison finally tells her own heartbreaking story of her Southern Gothic childhood, tormented marriage, motherhood, mental breakdown, and journey back to sanity and contentment, in luminous, evocative prose
Summary
The mother of best-selling memoirists Augusten Burroughs and John Elder Robison, Margaret Robison offers her own version of the events so famously chronicled in her sons' much-talked about works. From one view, Margaret and her husband John's life together began with a sheen of normality: he a successful academic and she an artist, poet, and mother. But when John turns to the bottle, and Margaret sinks farther and farther into mental illness, the cracks in their lives threaten to consume their fragile family
