The Long Journey Home (Spiegel & Grau) hits bookstores on March 1, 2011, and early buzz is Robison’s story is compelling and well-told. The author, who has been wheelchair-bound since suffering a stroke in 1989, has been largely quiet about her sons’ writings, saying only that she doesn’t always agree with their portrayals of their early lives, and “I’ve had to forgive myself for many things.”
It’s well known that Robison had her own psychological troubles during her sons’ childhoods—she attempted suicide and endured at least one abusive relationship.
Will she tell all in the memoir? Will you read it?
