Adventure and Healing at
100 Miles Per Hour
At the age of forty-nine, life sucker-punched Barbara Schoichet. She had a great job working for a major Hollywood studio, a girlfriend she adored, and a family she cherished. But within six months, it all came crashing down. She lost her job in a merger, her girlfriend left her for her hairdresser a week later, and her mother died within four days of receiving a cancer diagnosis. She was grieving on so many levels she didn’t know who she was. But as Barbara discovered, losing your identity can be a way to find out who you really are. So shortly after turning fifty she took motorcycle lessons, bought a Harley on eBay, and flew from Los Angeles to New York to ride it home-alone-a journey she chronicles in her funny, irreverent, and moving memoir, DON’T THINK TWICE: Adventure and Healing at 100 Miles Per Hour (Putnam; September 6, 2016).To learn more about the book, click here: www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/529767/dont-think-twice-by-barbara-schoichet/
