The Hypocrisy of Disco

 The Hypocrisy of Discoby Clane Hayward

An honest and raw memoir, Clane Hayward takes us on a journey through the landscape of a turbulent time in the world which was also her childhood.

She tells us of growing up in communes, being shuttled between two parents, both free spirits, and trying to make sense of a world seemingly without boundaries or roots. Oftentimes Clane and her brother were left to their own devices to raise themselves, and each other.

Clane never blames the adults in her life, nor does she ever make excuses for them. She accepts them as she does her childhood. She takes what she was given and makes the very most of it. She is to be admired for this, and for the many things she imparts through her story.

Clane’s memoir will make you feel many things, and stay with you long after you close the book.
