to the moon and back:
a childhood under the influence

Thank you for downloading!

Lisa Kohn’s memoir of being raised in and torn between two conflicting 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 New York City’s East Village in the 1970’s.

I grew up in a religious cult, where fun was sinful

I was taught to sacrifice and to suffer

Those are lies I was taught. That is,"the cult talking."

Joy is my new goal. Love is my new answer. Fun is my new delight.

How about you?
