Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed poet Alex “Happy” Lemon takes listeners on a journey of addiction, tragedy, and survival in this memoir.
With an aneurysm in his brain, Lemon becomes trapped within the wreckage of his 19-year-old, stroke-ravaged body. But as he plunges into depression and longs for death, his mom’s life-affirming determination urges him to talk and walk and live again.


What the Critics Say

"A page-turner on par with the best thrillers....Lemon's exquisite prose blasts us out of our own time, heart, brain, and body into his, making an acute empathy possible. Read this and weep, laugh, weep." (Library Journal)
