Critically acclaimed poet Alex "Happy" Lemon takes listeners on a journey of addiction, tragedy, and survival in this memoir. With an aneurysm in his brain, Lemon becomes trapped within the wreckage of his 19-year-old, stroke-ravaged body. But as he plunges into depression and longs for death, his mom's life-affirming determination urges him to talk and walk and live again.

Professional reviews

"Alex Lemon was supposed to be so much more than what he found himself: a deeply depressed hospital patient who had suffered recurring strokes and other brain complications. But Lemon discovers real happiness through recovery. In an emotional reading, Nick Landrum recounts the highs and lows that made Lemon who he is. Landrum's voice trembles but never falters. There's raw emotion in his tone, and he tells Lemon's story as if the words were flowing directly from the author's fragile brain. Landrum's delivery is seamless as he guides listeners toward the light of Lemon's recovery. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
