Abandon Me Overview

This collection of memoirs on various subjects is anchored in the author's experience of searching for connection – with herself, with others, and with her history. That search, the book suggests, originates in an absence of connection – what the author defines as a sense of abandonment. As it considers both these thematic threads, the collection also contemplates themes related to the nature and qualities of addiction, the power and value of secrets, and the various facets of truth and meaning in relationships.
