Publication Date: October 2, 2012
In the era of "Mad Men," a true story about the daughter of a television executive who strays way off the entitled path of her spoiled childhood into a seedy underworld.
Growing up during the golden age of television, older daughter Trish is wedged between talkative, fidgety brother Spencer and bubbly, pink-sequined younger sister Grace. Trish grows into a tomboy and the family golden child -- unwittingly providing fuel for her narcissist father's cruelty. Add an alcoholic wannabe movie star mother and a Southern California community full of itself like no other and you have the ingredients for an unforgettable story.
As the bright lights of Hollywood pretenses fade, Trish's family implodes and she descends into a desperate world of addiction and risk -- drug abuse, videotaped suicide, same-sex romance, and an overseas kidnapping attempt -- all unimaginable from the entitled existence of her childhood. You'll find yourself shaking your head in wonder as the author uses her wide-angle (fisheye) observations to guide us through jaw-dropping experiences.
Personal, honest, and shocking, "Fisheye" is a true story that you shouldn't miss.
