About the Author

George McGovern served in the U.S. Senate for 18 years and was the 1972 Democratic candidate for president. He directed the first Food for Peace Program under President John F. Kennedy. A decorated World War II bomber pilot (Distinguished Flying Cross), he held a PhD in history from Northwestern University and taught at Dakota Wesleyan University. He was named by former president Bill Clinton in 1997 as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization. In 2000, he was awarded the nation's highest honor, the Medal of Freedom. He died in 2012 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, at the age of 90.

Reviews

"McGovern's story is riveting as he investigates his daughter's life, reads her anguished and accusatory diaries, interviews her friends and doctors, sifts through the sordid police and medical records... a family drama of love and loss."--The New York Times Book Review

"Terry reads like William Styron's Lie Down in Darkness... Heartbreaking... It is probably the quintessential American experience of the second half of this century, a precariously stable family trying to hold on to a child who--because of drugs, drink, depression--cannot be held on to, and who sinks away, into some form of oblivion."--Carolyn See, The Washington Post
