9780061826696: Slow Motion: A Memoir of a Life Rescued by Tragedy (P.S.)

"Chilling. . . . There is a gritty honesty to her cautionary confession that will alert others to listen for and respond to wake-up calls of their own." -- New York Times Book Review

"Shapiro does not sugarcoat her life; she writes with an eviscerating, raw honesty about the wrong turns and mistakes she made." -- Boston Globe

Slow Motion is the critically-lauded bestselling memoir from acclaimed novelist Dani Shapiro (Black & White, Family History). Slow Motion is a "riveting" and "breathtaking" look (San Francisco Chronicle), free of self-pity or regret, at a life that was rescued by an unspeakable tragedy.

Review:

"A page-turner."-Mademoiselle
"No doubt to regroup as rapidly as Shapiro does requires brutal honesty and a well-honed sense of humor-elements she wields artfully in her short, fabulous history. . . . She's driving with the top down. Bright Lights, Big City-the chick version."-People
"Absolutely heart-rending . . . a great piece of writing and an inspirational tale . . . Slow Motion illuminates the rocky road to integrity and maturity in graceful but wrenching steps."-Salon

From the Back Cover:

At twenty-three, Dani Shapiro was in the midst of a major rebellion against her religious upbringing. She had dropped out of college, was halfheartedly acting in television commercials, and was carrying on with an older married man when her life was changed, in an instant, by a phone call. Her parents had been in a devastating car accident. Neither was expected to survive. In her first memoir, Shapiro offers this powerful true story of a life turned around--not by miracles or happy endings, but by unexpected personal catastrophe.
