The Angle of Flickering Light

Desperate to find respite from her father’s verbal abuse, his various affairs, and her step-mother’s psychological torment, Gina spent hours doing Jane Fonda’s workouts, smoked cigarettes instead of eating food, and became obsessed with her thinnessโ€ฆ with the notion of fading away. She found solace in restlessness-drinking hallucinogenic mushroom tea and inhaling crushed pills and powders-perching herself on the periphery of danger again and again.
Gina soon glimpsed a better life for herself when her grandfather, a man who was a surrogate father to her, became terminally ill. She soon fell in love with John, a stranger who was utterly familiar, but who was addicted to heroin. She moved from New Hampshire to California, crossing the country in an attempt to alleviate her self-destructive tendencies, but found herself pulled back to New Hampshire, to John, a man with whom, despite his struggle, she could not deny the sense of home she felt.
What would it cost for a girl to run wildly and recklessly into womanhood, making instant, temporary homes?

Wow, what a remarkable story of resilience, survival and hope. The Angle of Flickering Light is a heartbreaking, inspiring and beautifully written memoir that will stay with me for a long time. A fantastic read for #nonfictionNovember.
