Chilling. . . . There is a gritty honesty to her cautionary confession that will alert others to listen for and respond to wake-up calls of their own. New York Times Book Review

Shapiro does not sugarcoat her life; she writes with an eviscerating, raw honesty about the wrong turns and mistakes she made. Boston Globe

Slow Motion is the critically-lauded bestselling memoir from acclaimed novelist Dani Shapiro (Black & White, Family History). Slow Motion is a riveting and breathtaking look (San Francisco Chronicle), free of self-pity or regret, at a life that was rescued by an unspeakable tragedy.
