9780061719158: Fall to Pieces: A Memoir of Drugs, Rock and Roll and Mental Illness

Fall to Pieces is a beautifully written, visceral, roller coaster ride inside bipolar disorder, rock ’n’ roll, celebrity culture, and the world of modeling. Mary Forsberg Weiland, wife of Scott Weiland, front man for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, tells a harrowing true story of depression, drug addiction, and mental illness with candor and, often, humor. Co-written with veteran journalist Larkin Warren, Fall to Pieces is a blistering, eye-opening memoir of Hollywood meltdown in the bestselling vein of Tatum O’Neal’s A Paper Life and Valerie Bertinelli’s Losing It.

Review:

Want to take a trip to the dark side and back? Fall to Pieces is a brutally honest and compelling account of Mary Weiland's struggles with addiction and mental illness that will have you on the edge of your seat with every turn of the page. This is a cautionary story that offers hope and solution to these often seemingly hopeless conditions. Brave, bold and unfiltered, Mary's writing injects humor and levity in a way that is both entertaining and necessary, while keeping the focus on the extremely serious and life threatening behaviors that she confronts. Many people don't have the opportunity to come back and share their experiences, and I have no doubt that this important book will help save many lives.
--Dave Navarro, Guitarist, September 2009

From the Back Cover:

In March 2007, twenty-fourhours afterMary Weiland dragged her husbandScott’s pricey rock-starwardrobe ontotheir driveway and torched it, she wasarrested and locked up in a mental hospital.

To the outside world, Weiland hadled what seemed to be an enviable life.A successful international model inthe nineties, she married her longtimesweetheart, Scott Weiland of Stone TemplePilots and Velvet Revolver, in 2000. Marywas the sane one, went the story; it wasthe tempestuous, unpredictable Scott whowas crazy. But the truth was somewherein between.

With refreshing candor, innate comictiming, and earned wisdom, Weilandchronicles her quest to come to grips withthe addictions that could have killed her,and to understand and manage her bipolardisorder. Fall to Pieces is a wild ride intothe dark and back into the light.
