Carolyn Leigh, Author and curator

Marcia Abboud openly comes to terms with the betrayals, shame and self-loathing which took her to the edge of the darkest abyss. This compelling memoir is about family violence, addiction, sexual abuse, suicide, motherhood, secrets, loss, sorrow, resilience, honesty — and is written with the authentic voice and wry humour which only insight and hindsight can bring – a rare achievement.
