Ten years ago, the author discovered that her mother, Elinor, had been faking debilitating illness for 30 years. This "honest and heartbreaking" memoir delves into a complex world of family bonds and mental illness, based on the diaries Elinor kept for 50 years until her self-induced death; and explores the nature of truth and identity.
