Description

"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.
