MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, “nothing short of spectacular” (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world’s most gifted storytellers—soon to be a major motion picture starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts. The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.

Kathy Eldon longed for a life of greater self-expression, deeper feeling, bigger adventures. After graduating from Wellesley, she married a Brit and moved to London in 1969. While she quickly settled into marriage and early motherhood, she longed for a more vibrant life. In 1978, her husband came to her with an opportunity that might provide the adventure and life experience she longed for: they were to move with their two young children, to Kenya. There, Kathy and her husband set about raising Dan and Amy in a society that shaped her children to be spiritual and artistic--and where they were free to follow their own truth in a way she hadn't been. Eldon, too, began to find her soul, and dove into this tumultuous new world as a journalist and writer. But this is not a romanticized paean to Africa, and In the Heart of Life describes the darker aspect Eldon began to discover in her adopted homeland--the exhilarating sense of danger she began to crave. Her darkest moments of all came in 1993, when her son Dan, a twenty-two-year-old photojournalist for Reuters, was stoned to death by an angry mob in Somalia. A psychic dimension is also central to the story. Skeptical at first, Kathy ignores the evidence of her first encounter with the paranormal in London, is driven by hard facts to explore it in Kenya, and finally accepts its validity after Dan's death. There is a third thread interwoven with the others--how Kathy faces the progressive challenges of her failing marriage, a volcanic love affair that goes wrong, the loss of her home and job as a journalist in Kenya, a near fatal illness, embarking on an entirely new career in film production, coming to terms with her son's murder, and creating a new life for herself and her daughter Amy in Hollywood. In the Heart of Life is an extraordinary story of love, danger, death and a passionate ambition to help some of the most desperate, men, women and children on earth.

Annita Sawyer's memoir is a harrowing, heroic, and redeeming story of her battle with mental illness, and her triumph in overcoming it. In 1960, as a suicidal teenager, Sawyer was institutionalized, misdiagnosed, and suffered through 89 electroshock treatments before being transfered, labeled as "unimproved." The damage done has haunted her life. Discharged in 1966, after finally receiving proper psychiatric care, Sawyer kept her past secret and moved on to graduate from Yale University, raise two children, and become a respected psychotherapist. That is, until 2001, when she reviewed her hospital records and began to remember a broken childhood and the even more broken mental health system of the 1950s and 1960s, Revisiting scenes from her childhood and assembling the pieces of a lost puzzle, her autobiography is a cautionary tale of careless psychiatric diagnosis and treatment, both 50 years ago and today. It is an informative story about understanding PTSD and making emotional sense of events that can lead a soul to darkness. Most of all, it's a story of perseverance: pain, acceptance, healing, hope, and success. Hers is a unique voice for this generation, shedding light on an often misunderstood illness.

After a terrifying overdose, he tried to straighten out. Yet as he journeyed from the glittering streets of Manhattan, to a wilderness boot camp in Utah, to a psych ward in New Orleans, he only found more opportunities to create chaos--until finally, he began to face himself."--
