Overview: Fisheye: A Memoir

Written with the taut, plot-driven momentum of a fictional yarn, this true story reveals an insider's intimate details of the Hollywood dream gone horribly wrong. Wedged between talkative, fidgety older brother Spencer (more equipped to interact with electronics than people) and younger sister Grace (a bubbly, pink-sequined, girly girl), tomboy Trish grew into the family golden child--unwittingly providing fuel for her narcissist father's cruelty. Add an alcoholic wannabe movie star mom and a Southern California community full of itself like no other and you have the ingredients for an unforgettable story. Life for Trish and her siblings ricocheted between forced conversations with beautiful people and a house rife with deafening silence. Eventually dreams of stardom eroded, tension became unbearable, and the family imploded. That was just the beginning. Left on her own, Trish descended into a desperate world of addiction and risk--both physical and emotional--unimaginable from the spoiled, fantasy life of her childhood. A nineteen-year-old boyfriend introduced her to sex at thirteen and became her gateway into a world that her parents never could have imagined. You'll find yourself shaking your head in wonder as Trish uses her wide-angle (fisheye) observations to guide us through jaw-dropping experiences. Note: The author successfully weaves allusions to the Wonderful Wizard of Oz throughout her own odyssey. You'll find references to Dorothy's journey of self-discovery, replete with all the colorful characters and settings of the original parable.

    Book Review: FISHEYE A Memoir By Trish Thorpe

    This book Fisheye A Memoir by Trish Thorpe is not enough to be read just once. Some books are not. They invite you to be read again assuring a different meaning every time you read it. This is also true with some people. They give you an amazing feeling every time you meet. The same is perhaps true with this book. Trish Thorpe is the writer and central character of this memoir. Some books can easily become contestant for a movie. This is one of those.

    Tricia is tom boyish right since her childhood. She has an elder brother, Spencer and a younger sister Grace. Her father is one of the renowned personality in Hollywood working as assistant director. Her mother is an aspirant actress but could not get anything more than few side roles in certain movies. The best thing her mother could achieve in life is marrying Mr. Thorpe who is well established and earning good amount of money and reputation. Tricia is liked a lot by her father as compared to her siblings. She is most active among the three kids in the house and a very good swimmer too. She is called as 'FishEye' by her father. Money has never been a matter of concern in the family due to the number of assignments Mr. Thorpe keep getting.

    Being a rich family, living in a locality where most of the Hollywood personalities live, Mrs. Thorpe has enough time for partying, clubbing, playing, spending money, drinking and gossiping etc. Both parents have engraved high impact on Tricia's life as we move along the memoir. Tricia is good both in studies and sports. She somehow has a negative impact out of her father's rude, insulting and neglecting behavior that drifts her towards drugs. Tricia goes through lot of pains throughout her life - due to drugs, because of her father and quite a few other reasons.

    Worded in a beautiful manner, this book has all kind of rhythm, continuity, flow, connection and aptness in all aspects to grab your interest all through. Each word seems to be spelled out of heart...

    I would give it a rating of 5 out of 5.
