I’m excited to announce my memoir Searching for Normal will officially release Saturday November 16, 2013! The location is Audreys Books and the time is 12:30 – 3pm. Retail Price is $15.95 Canadian.
Searching for Normal follows in the great tradition of creative nonfiction. Detailing her personal experience from the onset of a rare and painful illness at the age of three, Alison Neuman recounts her personal journey coming to terms with an ever-shifting conception of ‘normality’. The disease having shaped her life in ways most could never imagine, a carefree childhood quickly morphed into a blur of ongoing hospitalizations, increasingly reduced mobility, and overwhelming fatigue and pain.
But amidst her constant battles with her health, Alison emerged as a champion. Searching for Normal will leave readers awed by Alison’s perseverance and strength of character. Her story serves as a pertinent reminder that ‘normal’ is in the eye of the beholder.
