Product Overview

The story is so improbable, it can only be true: A brilliant woman with a long history of mental illness?who once proclaimed herself to be "the center of the universe" ? is miraculously cured by accidental carbon monoxide poisoning aboard the family boat. Nancy Bachrach warns readers, ?Don?t try this at home? in her darkly humorous memoir about ?the second coming? of her mother ? the indomitable Lola, whose buried family secrets had been driving her crazy.

Aching and tender, unflinching and wry, The Center of the Universe is a multigenerational mother-daughter story?a splendid, funny, lyrical memoir about family, truth, and the resilience of love.
