Writer and musician Tony Cohan has created a memoir of his unstable life growing up between L.A. and NYC with a down-on-his-luck radio producer father and an alcoholic mother. Cohan describes his father's early showbiz years as exciting, a time when celebrities are a part of the family's life. However, when the radio show is discontinued, Cohan's father scrambles for work and life becomes more difficult and complicated. Cohan's painful descriptions of his parents' troubled times--both financially and emotionally--take many painful twists and turns down the corridors of memory. His struggle to overcome this depressive environment results in his attraction to music and writing as much-needed creative outlets. Cohan's narration rings with both pain and poetic revelations as he relates his tumultuous experiences as a child and teen. B.J.P.
