The Pat Boone Fan Club is a memoir of just under 250 pages written by Sue Silverman. In it, Sue shares her life journey as a white Anglo-Saxon Jewish woman. From childhood to adulthood, Sue shares her inner struggles of finding herself and becoming comfortable in her own skin. She experiences many life challenges such as sexual abuse, empty marriages and a loneliness that comes from feeling displaced.
A dense book with a poetic gracefulness, the author draws readers into her life while simultaneously writing in a way that allows them to experience the disconnectedness that Sue describes having endured. It is inspiring to read the words she penned, knowing she went from “setting the bar so low for myself, I trip over it” to becoming an accomplished author, speaker and teacher.
This is Sue’s fourth book. She is a writer, a public speaker, and a teacher in the Writing Program at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. In addition to the Pat Boone Fan Club, Sue has written two other memoirs as well as Fearless Confessions: A Writer’s Guide to Memoir, a book of poetry and has had short works published as well.
If you enjoy reading poetry, stories about truth and being inspired by the underdogs in life, this is a book
you’ll want to pick up and read. The Pat Boone Fan Club will inspire you to examine your own heart and
life and find the underdog in you.
