In this powerful follow-up to her New York Times bestselling memoir, A Paper Life, Academy Award®-winning actress Tatum O''Neal returns with an extraordinary chronicle of family, forgiveness, redemption, and commitment-a remarkable story told with honesty, humility, determination, and above all . . . love

The golden child of a glamorous Hollywood couple, Tatum O''Neal had a childhood that looked, from the outside, to be fairy-tale perfect. The reality was far from perfect, and in A Paper Life, Tatum shared her poignant, painful experiences of growing up in-and away from-a dysfunctional show-business family. Now, in Found, she digs even deeper and explores the tough issues that resonate in most women''s lives. It is a story of taking two steps forward and one step back, of learning to understand what forgiveness really means-physically, emotionally, and spiritually-and how to live it every day. With candor and grace, Tatum chronicles the challenges and joys of being a single mother to three grown children, an ex-wife, a working actress, and a woman who has lived her life in the public eye for the better part of forty-five years. She speaks frankly about the persistence it took to beat her addictions to drugs and alcohol, and the hard work of staying clean and sober, including dealing with the deep emotional void that illicit substances falsely promise to fill.

Tatum details her ongoing efforts to negotiate friends, family, aging, money, love, loss, and Hollywood, while the specter of her past continues to lurk, a reminder of her battle and a testament to her will to survive. And she honors the people whose perseverance and courage in overcoming their own dark troubles have inspired her. Found is also a father-daughter love story: a portrait of a fragile, tentative reconciliation between a parent and a child who, as documented in the OWN television docuseries The O''Neals: Ryan and Tatum, try to heal the hurt and pain of a lifetime.

Tatum O''Neal has done the hard work necessary to get her life on track and come to terms with the person she is. Finally, she shares her whole story. Her moving and inspirational saga reminds us all that no matter what has happened in our own lives, we must keep moving forward to the light and the future, step by step, day by day. Only then may we find the truepath home.
