Inside Out: a Memoir; Demi Moore
Harper - 2019
The same question kept going through my head: How did I get here?
In the empty house where we married, where we'd added on because I had more kids than I had bedrooms, I was now completely alone. I was almost fifty. The husband who I thought was the love of my life had cheated on me and then decided he didn't want to work on our marriage. My children weren't speaking to me: no happy birthday calls, no Merr Christmas texts. Nothing. Their father--a friend I'd counted on for years --was gone from my life. The career I scrambled to create since I moved out of my mother's apartment when I was sixteen years old was stalled, or maybe it was over for good. Everything I was attached to--even my health--had abandoned me. I was getting blinding headaches and losing weight scarily fast. I looked like I felt: destroyed.
Any interest in this one?
