In this powerful follow-up to her New York Times
bestselling memoir, A Paper Life, Academy
Award®-winning actress Tatum
O’Neal returns with an extraordinary chronicle of family,
forgiveness, redemption, and commitment—a remarkable story
told with honesty, humility, determination, and above all .
. . love
The golden child of a glamorous Hollywood
couple, Tatum O’Neal had a childhood that looked, from the
outside, to be fairy-tale perfect. The reality was far from
perfect, and in A Paper Life, Tatum shared her
poignant, painful experiences of growing up in—and away
from—a dysfunctional show-business family. Now, in
Found, she digs even deeper and explores the tough
issues that resonate in most women’s lives. It is a story of
taking two steps forward and one step back, of learning to
understand what forgiveness really means—physically,
emotionally, and spiritually—and how to live it every day.
With candor and grace, Tatum chronicles the challenges and
joys of being a single mother to three grown children, an
ex-wife, a working actress, and a woman who has lived her
life in the public eye for the better part of forty-five
years. She speaks frankly about the persistence it took to
beat her addictions to drugs and alcohol, and the hard work
of staying clean and sober, including dealing with the deep
emotional void that illicit substances falsely promise to
Tatum details her ongoing efforts to negotiate
friends, family, aging, money, love, loss, and Hollywood,
while the specter of her past continues to lurk, a reminder
of her battle and a testament to her will to survive. And
she honors the people whose perseverance and courage in
overcoming their own dark troubles have inspired her.
Found is also a father-daughter love story: a
portrait of a fragile, tentative reconciliation between a
parent and a child who, as documented in the OWN television
docuseries The O’Neals: Ryan and Tatum, try to heal
the hurt and pain of a lifetime.
Tatum O’Neal has
done the hard work necessary to get her life on track and
come to terms with the person she is. Finally, she shares
her whole story. Her moving and inspirational saga reminds
us all that no matter what has happened in our own lives, we
must keep moving forward to the light and the future, step
by step, day by day. Only then may we find the true path home.
