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 the author 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. Youll find yourself shaking your head in wonder as Trish uses her wide-angle (fisheye) observations to guide us through jaw-dropping experiences.With remarkably adept word craft from a debut author, Thorpe explores issues that are both intensely private and startlingly universal.

Drawn from journals she kept while working through personal issues, Fisheye carries us from the depths of the unthinkable to an ultimate place of positive reawakening. Yes there are elements of this story that appeal to us individually, but Thorpes triumphant emancipation from her past belongs to us all.Note: The author successfully weaves allusions to the Wonderful Wizard of Oz throughout her own odyssey. Youll find references to Dorothys journey of self-discovery, replete with all the colorful characters and settings of the original parable.
