Randy Mason grew up in New York City, where she has lived most of her life. A teenager during the turbulent 1970s, she would escape her own demons by immersing herself in school, music, art, and alternate worlds. While seeking a career as a rock musician and songwriter, she held a variety of jobs. But when she was in her late forties, she returned to graduate school and became a psychoanalytic psychotherapist to help others as she herself had been helped. An avid martial artist for many years, she earned two black belts during the course of her training. Most recently, she took up photography. One of her greatest regrets is not pursuing her love of physics. Falling Back to One is her first book.

Although categorized as a YA book (which I didn't realize when I purchased it), this is totally readable for adults. I'll also note here that I would give it 4 stars if it were written for adults, but definitely think it's a 5-star YA book. You reall ...more

I absolutely loved this book with its great characters of Maddy-Monkey and Legs Sadovsky. Often written in Oates' semi-stream-of-consciousness style (with the attendant lack of punctuation), it takes the reader on a wild adolescent ride with (as alwa ...more

A slow, quiet narrative, this story is told from the very personal viewpoint of the main character, so that dialogue often (though not always) has no punctuation, as if being mentally processed versus written for the reader. Indicative of someone who ...more

Another truly beautiful collection of stories from Lahiri, two of which ultimately connect, which is an enjoyable twist. All of her stories are unique and full of rich characters. Told in an easy-to-read yet eloquent, quietly written style, the stori ...more
