In this extraordinary memoir, Urban Miyares brings to life his adverse relationship with his alcoholic father, his secretive dual-life during his school years, and his battle as an adult with blindness, physical and mental disabilities to extend the diagnosis of a shortened life expectancy.

In candid prose, Miyares sheds light on his over-achieving personality, his obsession to recognize the meaning of love, and anguish to find his purpose in life.

"My Life Outside the Fish Bowl” is a compulsive, inspirational memoir, laced with vivid (and some not as vivid) memories which include recognizing how your past defines you. It is also a powerful story about never quitting, and forging your own path to reach goals considered insurmountable by others.
