The Long Journey Home: A Memoir
Date: July 2011
Duration: 13 hours 25 minutes
The mother of best-selling memoirists Augusten Burroughs and John Elder Robison, Margaret Robison offers her own version of the events so famously chronicled in her sons' much-talked about works. From one view, Margaret and her husband John's life together began with a sheen of normality: he a successful academic and she an artist, poet, and mother. But when John turns to the bottle, and Margaret sinks farther and farther into mental illness, the cracks in their lives threaten to consume their fragile family.
