‘Lindsay – The Memoir’ By Lindsay Wincherauk

A shocking and heartwarming collection of stories about a child’s search for identity after accidentally discovering at age 43, the parents he watched die were not his birth parents.

15 Sections. 106 Stories. A dark family secret, religion-fuelled shame, and pain-derived humour cobbled together to make one whole in an extraordinary ride through a shattered life.

A unique, riveting, intensely personal, and exceptionally candid memoir.

An extraordinary account of an extraordinary life. Deftly written, complex, thoughtful, and thought-provoking.
… …
Little did I know, fifty-six years later, I’d be meeting my mother for the first time as my mother, at the side of her deathbed.
… …
Not only is this memoir rife with family drama, but it is also the only memoir with a motorcycle crash in Jamaica, an attempted coup in Panama involving Manuel Noriega, a brush with the Dalai Lama in a Vancouver food court, eating breakfast with The Thing from the Fantastic Four, and a two-on-two basketball game with Fox Mulder.
