It tells her story of being raised in and torn between two conflicting worlds: her mother’s world that she longed for and lived in on the weekends – the fanatical, puritanical cult of the Moonies – and her father’s world that she lived in during the week – the world of drugs, sex, and squalor in New York City’s East Village in the 1970s. You can download the first chapter of her memoir on her website – and see how Lisa learned some of the messages she shares.
