Praise

“McGovern’s story is riveting as he investigates his daughter’s life, reads her anguished and accusatory diaries, interviews her friends and doctors, sifts through the sordid police and medical records… a family drama of love and loss.”—The New York Times Book Review

Terry reads like William Styron’s Lie Down in Darkness… Heartbreaking… It is probably the quintessential American experience of the second half of this century, a precariously stable family trying to hold on to a child who—because of drugs, drink, depression—cannot be held on to, and who sinks away, into some form of oblivion.”—Carolyn See, The Washington Post
