Synopses & Reviews
In Rosie's words, "The whole world changed with just one phone call...."
Comedian. Actress. Talk-show host. Producer. Benefactor. Editorial Director. Mother. Friend. Rosie O'Donnell has worn many hats. Now she takes on a new role: gifted writer and author, as she offers a brave and powerful account of an extraordinary experience that changed her life.
Part memoir, part mystery, Find Me is a compelling and utterly original tale that will break your heart as it heals it. Told in Rosie's candid, moving voice, it is the story of a friendship between a troubled young woman and a celebrity obsessed with helping her. As this bizarre relationship unfolds — and unravels — so, too, does Rosie's history, forcing powerful acts of remembering and reckoning. This is a topsy-turvy tale of unforgettable characters, mistaken identities, and strange psychological illnesses that may or may not exist. Through it all, we come to know the author at levels that grow ever more surprising — and sometimes shocking — as Rosie reveals to us not only the way the past transforms the present, but how a single stranger thousands of miles away can spark irrational longings, profound obsession, and, finally, the opportunity to put these forces to work in a healing way.
"In telling this fascinating tale, [Rosie] deftly weaves in accounts of her own heart-breaking trials as a young girl struggling to deal with the death of her mother. Rosie's endearingly self-effacing style and frank portrayal of events will keep readers hooked. And as the story comes to its surprising end, they are likely to find themselves either appalled at her gullibility or struck by her boundless compassion — possibly both." Book Page
