Tired of keeping his life-long secrets,
author Dominic Carter, described by
some as the best of New York’s political
reporters, and an on-air host at WABC Radio,
shares his remarkable,
gut-wrenching story at the hands
of his mother in "No Momma’s Boy."
Shortly after his mother’s death, Carter
obtains her psychiatric records to learn
more about the extent of her struggles. He
always knew she was plagued by mental
illness, but because of their limited relationship,
he never truly understood its severity. In
addition to revealing that she was a paranoid
schizophrenic, the records contain shocking
secrets from his past of which he has little or
no recollection. Carter learns the revolting
details of how his mother attempted to strangle
him to death when he was just a toddler and her
numerous suicide attempts. As he uncovers these
horrific details, Carter awakens memories of
unspeakable acts that he suffered at her hands.
Carter is also a victim of Childhood Sexual Abuse.
From a rough childhood including Foster Care, to a meaningful career attending social events at the White House and interviewing Nelson Mandela, to traveling the world, "No Momma’s Boy" recounts Carter’s tremendous highs and lows and how he survived to become the successful journalist that he is today.
