The daughter of brilliant, adoring parents, Joyce Maynard grew up writing, publishing her first book at age eighteen. But there were stories about which she could never write: her father's drinking, her mother's ambition to see Joyce succeed, and her year-long relationship, at age eighteen, with a mesmerizing man thirty-five years her elder: the legendary writer J.D. Salinger. This unflinchingly honest memoir explores the pain and confusion of early heartbreak as well as the wisdom, redemption, and triumph acquired when - seeing her own daughter turn eighteen - Joyce Maynard at last embraces the disquieting truths of her history and dares to break free of paralyzing shame and silence.
