How do you transcend a childhood marred by addiction and go on to pursue the life that is calling to you?
This week, Katy sits down with bestselling author Stephanie Danler to talk about her forthcoming memoir Stray, but also to discuss what it takes to make the hard decisions that will allow you to claim the kind of life you know you want.
Danler examines her overwhelming desire to wander the world and spend time in places where she can be anonymous, as well as what it took to face her fears and put down roots.
Stray is a "memoir of growing up in a family shattered by lies and addiction, and of one woman's attempts to find a life beyond the limits of her past. Stray is a moving, sometimes devastating, brilliantly written and ultimately inspiring exploration of the landscapes of damage and survival."
