Writers Bloc presents a program of extraordinary memoirists Alice Carrière with Jennette McCurdy.

Alice Carriere’s memoir, Everything/Nothing/Someone, was named a best nonfiction book of 2023 on almost every best book list imaginable. A “remarkable” (New York Times Book Review) memoir that tells of a young woman’s coming-of-age amid glamour, excess, and neglect, and the love affair that, against the odds, allows her to save herself. Alice grew up as a child living in the adult world of her artist parents, with little to no boundaries or supervision. As she enters adolescence, a dissociative disorder erases her identity, and overzealous doctors medicate her further into madness—until a medication-induced psychosis brings these personas crashing down. Finally, a soulful connection with a generous and sensitive musician allows her to free herself from the pathologies that defined her and discover her true self. With gallows humor and brutal honesty, Carrière has written a unique and mesmerizing narrative of emergence, forgiveness, and the transformative power of love.

Jennette McCurdy is the author of I’m Glad My Mom Died, winner of the 2023 American Library Association Alex Award, and the 2022 Goodreads Choice Award for Memoir & Autobiography. The book has been published in more than thirty countries and has sold more than three million copies worldwide. McCurdy lives in Los Angeles. McCurdy’s I’m Glad My Mom Died will also be available for purchase.
