9780061719165: Fall to Pieces: A Memoir of Drugs, Rock 'n' 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:

“A harrowing story of addiction and mental illness.” (People)

“A worthy addition to the rock canon.” (New York Post)

“Weiland’s lively, vernacular memoir tells the sadly wasted but ultimately self-directed tale of her meteoric rise as a model from impoverished, half-Mexican roots to a precipitous plunge into drug addiction....Weiland’s forthright, resilient can-do spirit injects this sad story with a healthy moral.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A brutally honest and compelling account of Mary Weiland’s struggles with addiction and mental illness. Brave, bold and unfiltered, Mary’s writing injects humor and levity in a way that is both entertaining and necessary. I have no doubt that this important book will help save many lives.” (Dave Navarro)

“Mary Weiland’s beautifully crafted memoir takes the reader through the journey that is so very common today, the slow drift into addiction and mental illness. Honest, clear, and accurate, Fall to Pieces is perhaps the most vivid rendition of this experience I have ever come across.” (Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of Loveline and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, author of The Mirror Effect and Cracked)

“Mary Weiland describes the depths of madness and addiction with surprising clarity. Fall to Pieces is a wild, gripping story, told with intense emotional honesty.” (Terri Cheney, New York Times bestselling author of Manic)

“For all the death and devastation detailed in its pages, this book is surprisingly funny.” (Reuters)

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.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. On the surface Mary Forsberg Weiland had a fairy-tale life. She was a highly paid fashion model married to successful rock star Scott Weiland, the notorious frontman for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver. Then came the rampage in a Burbank hotel room and the resulting media frenzy that revealed to the world her bipolar disorder and drug abuse. In Fall to Pieces, Weiland describes the extreme highs and lows of her life, the volatility of which long hinted at mental illness. Working with acclaimed journalist Larkin Warren, Weiland tells her story with refreshing candor, unflinching detail, and more than a little humor. Reminiscent of celebrity memoirs by Tatum O Neill, Brooke Shields, and Valerie Bertinelli, Weiland s story offers a window into the world of modeling and rock n roll celebrity while providing deep insights into a serious and misunderstood psychological disorder.
