Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With courage and unflinching candor, Connecticut family therapist Craig ( P.S. You'recq Not Listening ) details the emotional breakdowns suffered by her daughter Ann, which led to drug addiction, AIDS and death at age 34 in 1987. The eldest of four children, an accomplished student, would-be anthropologist and promising actress, Ann was first hospitalized, for suicidal impulses, as a senior in college; soon after her release she disappeared into Manhattan's East Village nightclub and drug culture from which her agonized mother periodically, and with limited success, sought to rescue her. Despite Craig's own professional skills, the help of consulting psychiatrists and the support of a devoted second husband, her efforts on Ann's behalf yielded only brief stints in detoxification programs, methadone maintenance and rare, tense reunions with the family. The dramatic impact and perspective of this restrained, heartfelt account are enhanced by revealing excerpts, often in poetry, from Ann's diaries. This is a powerful, wrenching testimony.

From School Library Journal

YA-- Ann seemed to have everything going for her--beauty, brains, friends, a loving family--but then it all came apart. This is the account of her demise, starting with a mental breakdown in her senior year at an ivy league college, to her death from AIDS 12 years later. Craig, a family therapist, presents the case in a direct, professional manner, but the fact that the young woman was her daughter adds strength and a bitter irony to this account. Excerpts from Ann's diary written during the period covered greatly enhance the book's poignancy. This is a powerful story that illustrates yet one more time that ``no man is an island'' and that actions have long-range repercussions.
