Stephanie Schroeder, Author of Beautiful Wreck: Sex, Lies & Suicide, Appears on "Life Unedited" Radio
Memoirist, Stephanie Schroeder Reveals Ravages of Mental Illness in New Book speaks with John Aberle from the Life Unedited Radio program.
Philadelphia, PA (I-Newswire) October 9, 2012 - Stephanie Schroeder, author of the recently published memoir Beautiful Wreck: Sex, Lies & Suicide, spoke with "Life Unedited" Host John Aberle last week about the painful journey she took from functioning depressive to her diagnosis with Bipolar Disorder to, finally, recovery.
Aberle asked the newly minted memoirist how she handles the "three strikes against her": lesbianism, Tourette Syndrome and Bipolar Disorder. While Schroeder said her lesbianism has never held her back, their dialogue about her diagnoses of Tourette Syndrome and, in particular, Bipolar Disorder was a gloves off, lay-it-on-the-table, honest discussion.
Schroeder's book has repeatedly been called brutally honest, raw and even harrowing (and hopeful). Aberle has been hosting "Life Unedited" on WCHE AM 1520 in the Philadelphia market for the past six years and it is now syndicated. "I talk about anything and everything; sex, sports, politics, religion, mental health, etc. Nothing is off the table or taboo," says Aberle.
Delving deeply into the meat of Schroeder's book, her experience with same-sex intimate partner violence, three attempted suicides and living with Bipolar Disorder, Aberle's probing questions evoked surprising responses about Schroeder's topical subject matter.
"No mainstream commercial publisher would touch my material because it's too honest, too raw," Schroeder said. "I deal with taboo subjects such as same sex domestic violence, and there's still enormous stigma attached to mental illness. I intended to break the silence about many issues and John Aberle appreciates that."
Beautiful Wreck: Sex, Lies & Suicide, an honest and raw memoir spanning approximately 20 years of Schroder's life, from her arrival in New York City at age twenty-five, "with edgy good looks, attitude to burn, and undiagnosed bipolar disorder. Her unflinching memoir chronicles her trajectory through the worlds of queer political activism, corporate America, intimate partner violence, unwilling parenthood, erotic discovery, 9/11…and three attempted suicides. Repeatedly falling through the cracks of the U.S. healthcare system, Schroeder became her own advocate, found help, and began a healthier life. Readers will find both entertainment and inspiration in the rollercoaster twists and turns of this “beautiful wreck” of a memoir."
