We want to thank Jessie Sholl for her GENEROUS donation!

When her divorced mother was diagnosed with cancer, New York City writer Jessie Sholl returned to her hometown of Minneapolis to help her prepare for her upcoming surgery and get her affairs in order. While a daunting task for any adult dealing with an aging parent, it's compounded for Sholl by one lifelong, complex, and confounding truth: Her mother is a compulsive hoarder. Dirty Secret is a daughter's powerful memoir of confronting her mother's disorder, of searching for the normalcy that was never hers as a child, and, finally, cleaning out the clutter of her mother's home in the hopes of salvaging the true heart of their relationship--before it's too late.

Dirty Secret: A Daughter Comes Clean About Her Mother's Compulsive Hoarding is available at fine bookstores, including Boarders, Barnes & Noble, Amazon & IndieBound.

Watch the trailer for Dirty Secret HERE, and read more of Jessie's thoughts about compulsive hoarding, memoir, and other pertinent obsessions on her BLOG.
