Alison Weaver's privileged upbringing hid the darker undertones of her childhood until her parents shipped her away, at fifteen, to the cultish Cascade School, warping her perception of reality. Upon graduation, set adrift in New York's East Village in the 1990s, her life began a downward spiral marked by needles and late-night parties. Stumbling into free fall and mingling with fears of death, she was forced to face her darkness. Here is Weaver's thoughtful exploration of what it means to fight for identity and equilibrium.

Alison Weaver is copublisher of the literary journalH.O.W., the proceeds of which go to needy orphans worldwide. Her work has appeared inSmall Spiral Notebook,Opiummagazine,Red China, and theFifth Street Review.
