SANDS HALL is the recent author of memoir FLUNK. START. The book chronicles her slow yet willing absorption into the Church of Scientology. Hall compellingly reveals what drew her into the religion—what she found intriguing and useful—and how she came to confront its darker sides.
AMY TAN is the author of THE VALLEY OF AMAZEMENT, THE JOY LUCK CLUB, THE KITCHEN GOD'S WIFE, THE HUNDRED SECRET SENSES, and many others. Most recently, she published her own memoir WHERE THE PAST BEGINS. By delving into vivid memories of her traumatic childhood, confessions of self-doubt in her journals, and heartbreaking letters to and from her mother, she gives evidence to all that made it both unlikely and inevitable that she would become a writer.
