House of the Moon: Surviving the Sixties

From encounters with Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and other legends of rock ’n’ roll, to loaded shotguns at home, sexual violence in the streets, and flying high on drugs just to get by—this fast-paced memoir brings to life Donna Conrad's quest to change the world—only to find herself changed by the times.

House of the Moon: Surviving the Sixties is a haunting and ultimately triumphant memoir about coming of age during the decade that changed the world.

"Raw, enlightening, and genius. Written in vignettes, House of the Moon, is a cohesive novel chronicling a teen's drug-induced and violent journey into becoming an adult. This book is both disturbing and beautiful for its honesty."
