9780156007092: Walk on Water (Harvest Book)

From catfishing in Mississippi as a young girl to battling marlin in the Caribbean, Lorian Hemingway has always felt most comfortable with a fishing pole in hand. But for many years, it was alcohol that held prominence in her life, almost causing her to drown in the family legacy. Walk on Water is Lorian Hemingway's amazing story of how her one true passion-fishing-saved her life. With humor and startling honesty, Hemingway wryly acknowledges how fishing is more than a metaphor for her salvation-it allowed her to feel connected to something as a child, living with her alcoholic mother and abusive stepfather. It helped her to heal after a to-hell-and-back fight for sobriety. And it led her to the discovery that family consists not necessarily of the people you are born with, but of those you choose to let into your heart. From despair to hope, from loss to recovery, Walk on Water is a remarkable tale of strength told by a born storyteller.

Review:

"A powerful, moving memoir and ode to fishing . . . Eloquent, raw, funny, this Hemingway has a voice all her own."-the New York Times Book Review "Enchanting and excruciating, delicious and chilling, a memoir full of pain and courage-a drama of self-deception finally conquered by truthfulness . . . at its heart a book about life, fear, self, survival."-The Baltimore Sun "The story of her recovery may be the most grueling one you've ever read. . . . A brutally honest story."-St. Petersburg Times

From the Author:

I GOT TO REMEMBER WHAT BROUGHT ME TO THE EDGE AND---
pulled me back. I got to know my family a little bit better by writing about them, about their sense of adventure, and in portraying them I saw their vulnerability and how brave they truly are. It was time, I guess to do this.
