Adam Cayton-Holland went from a painfully sensitive kid growing up in Denver, Colorado, to a writer and performer with a burgeoning career in comedy. His father, a civil rights lawyer, and his mother, an investigative journalist, taught Adam and his two sisters to feel the pain of the world deeply and to combat it through any means necessary. Adam chose to meet life’s tough breaks and cruel realities with stand-up comedy; his older sister chose law; their youngest sister, Lydia, struggled with mental illness and ultimately took her own life.

Incredibly moving, heartfelt and yes amusing tribute to what sounds like an amazing woman and family.
This reader thanks you, Adam Cayton Holland, for what must have been at times a heart wrenching process. Here’s hoping it leaves you lighter and more at peace with the path your dear sister chose.
Your family does indeed sound Magnificent, and I thank you for sharing them and your story.
