The national bestselling author of Good Hair and The Itch penned her first nonfiction book, a “memoir” about her own journey caring for aging parents, raising children, being married, plunging to the depths of depression, and climbing her way out.
Writing in the courageous tradition of great female storytellers such as Joan Didion, Nora Ephron, and Pearl Cleage, Benilde doesn’t hold back as she shares insights, inspiration, and intimate details of her life. Powerful, relatable, and ultimately redemptive, Welcome to My Breakdown: A Memoir, is a remarkable memoir about the power within us all to rise from despair and to feel hope and joy again.
Welcome to My Breakdown: A Memoir, will put you face-to-face with the realities of personal pain. What Benilde shares is a heroic demonstration of how to turn depression and loss into a path back to self. Her willingness to be open and authentic creates a healing prescription for us all. What a blessing!”
“Breakdown takes a slight departure from her four novels, with major creative results… Lively anecdotes…achingly honest detail…Little gets herself together, piece by broken piece…”
