Synopsis: Julia Horn has lived enough life in her 42 years to be twice that old--and in her latest memoir, tells us not only what she did during her time as a Chicago public defender, fund-raiser with the ultra-wealthy, religious sect member, and finally, semi-retired contented soul in the woods, but what she learned from it about the society we live in. This brilliant, terse memoir is not for the faint of heart: If you're looking for a fairy tale, Julia is not your storyteller. But if what you desire is an understanding of the probable cause for our current economic and social global crisis, this is the book you need to read. Julia's candor and cut-to-the-quick insightfulness lays it on the line while providing us with the hope we need to muddle through, see the light, then walk in it. Throughout her personal journey she goes beyond the introspective travelogue to offer us what we need to know about those in power who control our very sense of self. This is one of the most important messages of these troubled times. Read it and weep--for those who suffer at the hands of injustice in our courts, for those who are manipulated by money and power, and for all who seek a better solution to humanity's woes. We have the choice, as Julia explains, and the strength to change things. Yes, we can.
About the Author: Julia Horn has enjoyed two successful careers--one in law and one in development. As a public defender in inner-city Chicago for four years in the 1990s, she represented approximately 20,000 indigent clients as a trial lawyer. Since 1999 she has raised funds from the ultra-wealthy. Originally from Chicago, Julia now lives with her husband in the Rocky Mountain West and loves international travel, the outdoors, reading, spending time with friends, strong espressos, and Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
