Jo Carroll pulls the reader into her life as she experiences an abortion, desertion and divorce, the suicides of two 21 year old boys she loved, her marriage to a gay man and the seduction of her best friend's husband all while fighting the demons of mental illness. She finds religion when she converts to Judaism. From Atchison,Kansas to New Orleans to Gulfport, Mississippi she drags her children through the ups and downs of her daily life with determination and gusto, never forgetting how to laugh. It's every woman's story, with a few shock treatments and drugs thrown in for good measure.
Educated as a photojournalist at the University of Southern Mississippi, Jo Carroll worked for newspapers in and around the Baton Rouge area and the Jewish Press in Nebraska. Her photos have toured the Midwest and been featured in both Carnegie and Metropolitan Museums.
