Hollywood Park, by Mikel Jollett
"Though you may know Jollett as the frontman of the band The Airborne Toxic Event, this is far from a sex, drugs, and rock and roll memoir. It’s way better than that! It’s a powerful, heart-wrenching story of a really difficult childhood. There is addiction, there is emotional abuse, and, oh yeah, there’s the cult he was born into! Amazingly self-aware, fascinatingly introspective, and extraordinarily well-written, this is one of my favorite books in a long time!" -- Greg
The author, journalist, and rock musician Mikel Jollett was born into one of the country's most infamous cults, and subjected to a childhood filled with poverty, addiction, and emotional abuse. Yet, ultimately, his is a story of fierce love and family loyalty told in a raw, poetic voice.
