MSNBC anchor Tur (Unbelievable) delivers a raw look inside her childhood and career in this deeply personal memoir. Raised by the creators of Los Angeles News Network, Tur’s earliest memories are following her parents to cover breaking news in their helicopter. Despite the early success of the Turs, who pioneered capturing news from the air, including filming O.J. Simpson’s car chase and Los Angeles riots, her childhood is filled with fits of domestic violence and the unpredictability of a life lived following the 24/7 news cycle. As an adult, Tur follows in her parents’ footsteps, becoming a foreign correspondent and news anchor. Despite her professional success, Tur battles impostor syndrome and discusses her struggles with mental health and motherhood with candor. In addition, Tur provides her perspective on the fraught relationship she shares with her father. Readers will be drawn in by the exciting adventures of the Turs and will keep reading to cheer Tur on in her personal and professional journeys.
VERDICT Memoir readers will be captivated by Tur’s story.
