Lost in the Crowd by Kathleen Mulhall Haberland
"My birth is a joint venture between Mom, Dad, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt."
In Lost in the Crowd: Memoir of the First Baby Boomer, Kathleen Mulhall Haberland tells the story of being born into a large family in Norristown, Pennsylvania. She walks the reader through the joy of her childhood in the innocent 1950s, the disappointment of relationships during the early 1960s, and her total rebellion in the late 1960s and 1970s. Her lonely descent into a life of alcohol, drugs, and insanity is a journey she takes by herself and shares in easy language.
