About this title

Synopsis:

From superstar Suzanne Somers comes the much-talked-about, painfully honest account of her life in an alcoholic family and the difficult road to recovery. Although a book about pain and struggle, Keeping Secrets is also an inspiring personal story in which Suzanne Somers shares her family's ultimate triumph over the disease. HC: Warner. (Nonfiction)

From Publishers Weekly:

In an autobiography that unfolds from the viewpoint of the adult child of an alcoholic, Somers reveals the dark underpinning of her acting career. She shows us the gradual disintegration of her family due to their keeping the guilty secret of the father's affliction. The facade of normal family life was initially supported by Somers's stoic, churchgoing mother, but it also became the burden of the children. Though Somers's childhood in San Francisco was made harrowing by the rampages of her alcohol-maddened father, there were interstices of family togetherness. The author had a stormy adolescence, including a short-lived first marriage that produced a son; her siblings were affected by their own alcoholism until one, then another, joined Alcoholics Anonymous. Today, writes Somers, "Everyone in my family is now recovering." Her courageous outspokenness will support other children of alcoholics. Photos.
