Darin just released his memoir, “Half A Life,” which is about a car accident that transformed his life — when he was just a teenager. Come down to Powells; shake off the autumn blues; ignore the political rumblings from the left; huddle in close for refuge from the weather; listen to storytelling — it was once our primary art; catharsis.
Darin is a dynamic reader and this should be a dramatic event.
Says Elizabeth Gilbert: “Darin Strauss does not permit himself even one sentence, even one moment, of lazy thinking, or mitigating excuses. He examines with rigorous honesty every moment of the most awful and tragic event of his life. After all that admirable work and all that attentive detail, when he does finally reach a place of cautious hope, the impact is staggering and unforgettable.”
