This candid memoir shines an urgently-needed spotlight on the narcissist’s con-game habit of using human emotions as collateral. The book starts by sharing details of author Trish Thorpe’s indulgent Hollywood childhood. Her parents, and everyone else in the moneyed world they live in, are thoroughly absorbed with their own narcissistic fantasies, oblivious to Trish and her siblings lurching their way through adolescence and early adulthood on their own. As Trish’s life stumbles into adulthood, she unwittingly duplicates an eerily familiar adult family life, a same-sex family this time, and finds herself incarcerated by money once again. Forced to make a ‘Sophie’s Choice’ decision, she emancipates herself from her adult family. It’s not until she loses everything in the Great Recession and experiences the solitude of homelessness that she’s able to put together the narcissism puzzle pieces that have handcuffed her life. Now more than ever, recognizing and prevailing over toxic narcissism is essential. ‘Fisheye’ deftly illuminates the subject with heartfelt storytelling, humor, and a happy ending. $0.99 on Kindle.
