This memoir of a daughter's struggles to deal with a troubled mother describes the relationship between Jacki Lyden, a foreign correspondent for National Public Radio, and her manic depressive mother. As a child, Jacki would return home from grade school to find her mother wrapped in a toga of bedsheets, with eyeliner hieroglyphics drawn on her arms and a tiara on her head, convinced she was Marie Antoinette or the Queen of Sheba; in real life, she was trapped in a destructive marriage. Jacki eventually set out on her own journeys, soaring to great heights as a journalist. This moving story is a testimony to devotion and love between a mother and daughter.
