In Living With Rage: A Quest for Solace, successful author, entrepreneur, and children's advocate Angelica Harris dares to examine the life that almost killed her. As a teenager in Queens, New York in the 1970s, Harris bore two secrets: the beatings of a mother swiftly descending into mental illness, and her uncle's year-long sexual abuse. The burden of silence would continue as she later hid her rape and abortion, and shelved her own dreams to support her family. Always on the brink of exploding, Harris sought relief through literature, theater, and hard work, but she couldn't eradicate the rage that simmered inside her. In candid, revealing prose, Harris tells the story of a life haunted by violence but that also shimmers with all the complexities of love. Ultimately, Living With Rage is a powerful, redemptive act of both finding a voice and giving a voice to others.
