William Cope Moyers’ addiction to alcohol and cocaine began in his college years, although he had used before. When he admitted his problem, he stubbornly wanted to become clean and sober his way, which hampered his sobriety. His saga is detailed in his memoir Broken. Delia Moon’s mother died when she was two years old, after which her father went to war. Reared by her grandmothers, she describes the impact of these traumas plainly and eloquently.
