Praise
"...[A] father's painful, cathartic reminiscence. The former South Dakota Senator's distinguished career and accomplishments seem eclipsed by his daughter's horrifying death....[I]t is not a self-help book but rather a family drama of love and loss."
"McGovern's abiding love for his daughter, and his anguish at the thought of failing her, scorch these pages."
"[McGovern] is trying to make an inexplicable loss understandable. He wants to do something about his daughter's death. This can often be the motivation for good works."
"Heartbreaking. 'Terry' reads like William Styron's 'Lie Down in Darkness'. It is probably the quintessential American experience of the second half of this century."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Just before Christmas 1994, Senator George McGovern received the terrible news that his 45-year-old daughter, Terry, had frozen to death while in an alcoholic stupor. With courage and compassion, McGovern addresses the private tragedy that was Terry's affliction, providing a valuable contribution to the understanding of alcoholism and personal loss.
