Watching Their Dance and Beautiful Boy-Memoirs Written With Strong Emotion

Author Therese Crutcher-Marin

I’m currently reading a nonfiction book by David Sheff, Beautiful Boy-A Father’s journey through his son’s addiction. The book was published in 2008 and a movie was released in 2018 with Steve Carrell portraying the father. amazon.com/Beautiful-Boy

Beautiful Boy has been on my to-read list for a while.  The memoir is informative about what happens when his son, Nic, falls to the use of crystal meth, heroin, crack, prescription drugs – whatever the drug the results are pretty much predictable.

After finishing chapter 4, it was clear that Sheff and I had written emotional, heart wrenching stories about the struggles of loved ones with a brain disorder. Addiction and Huntington’s disease are brain disorders, and Sheff and I wrote how the disease affects the whole family.

Watching Their Dance is a journey John and I took through Huntington’s disease; 24 years watching my three sisters-in-law through a long progressive disease process and how my family dealt with it.
