to the moon and back:
a childhood under the influence
Coming September 18, 2018
Lisa Kohn’s memoir of being raised in and torn between two conflicting, bipolar worlds. There was the world she longed for and lived in on weekends – her mother’s world, which was the fanatical, puritanical cult of the Moonies – and the world she was forced to live in during the week – her father’s world, which was based in sex, drugs, and the squalor of life in the 1970’s in the East Village of New York City.
You really need to read this book, because it’s awesome.Jenny Lawson
