Brooke Berman is the author of the memoir No Place Like Home (Random House), the essay collection He Didn’t Fucking Learn it From Me (Dutch Kills Press) and the best-selling writing guide, 9 Juicy Weeks To A Wonderfully Imperfect First Draft (Dutch Kills Press).
Humorous, poignant, and honest, No Place Like Home is the story of one woman’s journey to feel settled without settling, and her realization that home is more than an address.
Brooke Berman moved to New York as a wide-eyed eighteen-year-old eager to make her mark in the big city. Candid, funny, and thoughtful, in No Place Like Home, we follow Brooke’s adventures as she crisscrosses town trying to make ends meet and make her dreams of a life in the theater come true.
With each apartment, from the heavenly to the horrible, she learns more about how to heal the past, let go of excess, and keep a sense of humor while trying to stay flexible in the search for stability. No Place Like Home reminds everyone of the age-old struggle not just to find a house, but to build a true home.
Witty essays on the joys and strains of family and the writing life from the award-winning writer.
