BEST-SELLING AUTHOR RELEASES SECOND MEMOIR ON RECOVERY
Nashville therapist and recovery expert excavates her roots as a means of healing
As a follow up to her highly successful debut memoir, High Bottom — Letting Go of Vodka & Chardonnay, author Tammy Roth and Wandering in the Words Press launch the sequel, New Bottom — Turning the Other Cheek. Roth’s second memoir continues her account of her life in recovery, but she also takes readers on a journey through her youth. She uncovers the experiences that shaped her and uses the exploration to heal old wounds, change current dynamics, and make way for a bold future.
Roth’s new memoir uncovers truths about forgiving, healing, seeking independence, and finding authenticity. She writes:
When I was fifty, I was five years sober, and I discovered I had spent a lifetime numbing, ignoring, rationalizing, and most of all, minimizing the less-than-idyllic environment in which I had grown up. I’d never had the desire to see myself as a victim, and I avoided others who exhibited a victim mentality. Come to think of it, I wasn’t too fond of vulnerability either. I had spent the majority of my life being stoic, strong, and resilient—my defense mechanisms. But the truth is that I grew up in a home filled with dysfunction and a little body filled with fear.
Roth’s first memoir, High Bottom, has held a spot in the top 100 Kindle books about alcoholism since its publication in January 2014. Both books are available on Amazon in paperback and e-book formats.
