Handbook for An Unpredictable Life
How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother, and Still Came Out Smiling (with Great Hair)Audiobook CD - 2014
What most people would be surprised to learn is that the woman with the big, effervescent personality has a secret straight out of a Dickens novel. At the age of three, Rosie's life was turned upside down when her mentally ill mother tore her away from the only family she knew and placed her in a Catholic children's home in New York's Westchester County. Rosie overcame the odds and made an incredible life for herself. She brings her journey vividly to life on each page of this memoir--from the vibrant streets of Brooklyn to her turbulent years in the Catholic home, and finally to film and TV sets and the LA and New York City hip-hop scenes of the 1980s and '90s.
