Crazy Love: A Memoir | [Leslie Morgan Steiner]

Crazy Love: A Memoir

Leslie Morgan Steiner met the love of her life at age 22, soon after graduating from Harvard and starting her first job at Seventeen magazine in New York. She fell for his self-deprecating wit and street smarts - and especially his unabashed worship of her. They married and spent four years together. At first Leslie felt like the woman of his dreams. Then she discovered her husband had been beaten as a child, taught by his parents that intimacy and rage danced together.

Publisher's Summary

Leslie Morgan Steiner met the love of her life at age 22, soon after graduating from Harvard and starting her first job at Seventeen magazine in New York. She fell for his self-deprecating wit and street smarts - and especially his unabashed worship of her. They married and spent four years together. At first Leslie felt like the woman of his dreams.

Then she discovered her husband had been beaten as a child, taught by his parents that intimacy and rage danced together. He brought violence into their life, pouring coffee grinds over her hair, choking and threatening her with a gun during arguments. Several times, he came close to making good on his threats to kill her. Leslie's mistake is one millions identify with: she fell in love with the wrong man. It took one last terrifying attack to convince her that he would kill her one day if she let him.

Gripping and compelling, Crazy Love unravels the traps laid by love, mesmerizing listeners with insights into why smart women stay in unhealthy relationships - and how one found the courage to leave.

    Story
    "I'd like to like this more... not very reflective"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would ONLY if that person was interested in knowing about domestic violence and abuse. I really wanted the writer to have more insight into the why of the abuse - and how she was hooked into a co-dependant role of being the one that "understood" who was going to help her abuser "work" on his childhood.


    Did Tanya Eby Sirois do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes


    Do you think Crazy Love needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No - I think it needs a forward or annotation to do a better of job of why the author got hooked into the relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    Will not purchase any other books by this author.
