1 E. W. SCHUSTER 1997 - 2000 ORIGINAL, INTIMATE MANUSCRIPT DIARIES [2] HANDWRITTEN BY A WOMAN STRUGGLING TO CONTROL HER ADDICTIONS TO ALCOHOL, BULIMIA, MONEY AND HER NEWLY OUT OF THE CLOSET LESBIANISM
ST. PETERSBURG FLORIDA FL 1997 Very Good 
On offer is a unique, pair [2] of desperately intimate 1997 - 2000 manuscript diaries of a near middle age woman [1978 alumni at University of Maine] who lays out the tragic, difficult life of this South Florida woman whose problems and the scope of those problems is sometimes mind numbing. Addictions, eating disorders, gender and social issues with a newly open lesbian, family disputes, work problems are all detailed by an obviously intelligent, well written woman who battles daily for her sobriety and sexuality. Her first entry is an introduction of sorts: Dated February 21 1997 "This book is about me, for me and to me. It is about who I am in this moment, it is about how thrilled I am to be alive. Mostly it is about being a lesbian, feeling wonderful about it and feel so relieved I can't believe it." An exceptional telling of one woman's experience of 'coming out' to her friends somewhere around her 40th year. Seeing friends turn on her, having intimate feelings unrequited about others, losing jobs are but a few of her problems. Family problems involving money and accusations of theft, a son facing a trial with hooligan pals causing problems, the constant beckoning call of alcohol to which she is addicted, her AA meetings where she is often attacked, her battle against her eating disorder [bulimia] with the backdrop of a woman who call to a higher power with such gratitude for a good day that one cannot help but root for her while feeling she will never overcome herself. In the end one cannot help but wonder whether the alcohol or the bulimia will be her end. Overall VG.
