9780985581534: Running from the Mirror: A Memoir

Just three days after he was born, Howard Shulman contracted an infection that devoured his nose, lips, lower eyelids, and palate, leaving behind a gaping hole. Abandoned at the hospital by his parents, he became a ward of New Jersey under the care of a state-employed surgeon, who experimentally rebuilt his face.

Running from the Mirror is the poignant true story of one man's struggle to survive against staggering odds and find his place in the world. Howard gives an unflinching account of growing up a bullied outcast, with no family to officially call his own. Relying on little more than street smarts and grit, he rises from dishwasher to successful entrepreneur. Along the way, a European actress, a schoolteacher, and a fiery Latina help transform his life.

Filled with heart-wrenching suffering as well as soul-lifting joy, this memoir is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

Review :

"This book begs to be seen as a major motion picture!" --Al Zuckerman, founder of Writer's House and best-selling author of Writing the Blockbuster Novel

"Shulman's story . . . reads like an engrossing thriller with an engaging, ugly-beautiful anti-hero who finds redemption. The best tribute I can give this astonishing tale is to urge you to stare into the author's mirror for yourself!" --Natalie Wood, Perfectly Well Read

"Running from the Mirror is vivid and engrossing from start to finish. As much as Shulman is influenced by his physical appearance and his childhood traumas, he is also driven by an inner resolve to create a better life for himself." --D. Donovan, senior reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"This poignant memoir was masterfully crafted from beginning to end. The writing was skillfully done, and the editing polished it to a high sheen . . . [Shulman's] revelations about forgiveness and letting go are all something we can learn from and apply to our own lives. This book is eye-opening." --Kara Piazza, The Writing Piazza

"What an amazing, inspirational story. The author has such heroic drive and strength that I found myself thinking of Mask. This all-too-true tale of personal redemption and growth should touch a nerve in every reader." --Gregory Lawrence, author of the New York Times best-seller Dancing on My Grave
