The Sky Isn’t Visible From Here by Felicia C. Sullivan

sky-isnt-visible.gifYou’re the writer, but remember, I’m your author”. These words, spoken by the author’s mother, reveal the truth behind this memoir. Despite growing up in the shadow of a controlling, substance-abusing mother, Felicia manages to get into Fordham University, become a creative writer and secure a position at an up-and-coming dot.com company. Though she is determined not to become her mother, “Lisa”, as her mother called her, cannot escape the powerful grip of the woman who raised her. She deals with drug and alcohol addictions in private while maintaining a different public persona. In a time of many discredited memoirs, this is a fresh look into a troubled life that tries hard to escape its destiny.
