A timeless, "triumphant" (Entertainment Weekly) story of healing
and recovery from the victim of a crime that shocked the nation:
the Central Park Jogger.Shortly after 9:00 p.m. on April 19, 1989,
a young woman jogs alone near 102nd Street in New York City's
Central Park. She is attacked, raped, savagely beaten, and left for
dead. Hours later she arrives at the emergency room-comatose-she
has lost so much blood that her doctors believe it's a miracle
she's still alive. Meet Trisha Meili, the Central Park Jogger. I Am
the Central Park Jogger recounts the mesmerizing, inspiring, often
wrenching story of human strength and transcendent recovery. Called
"Hero of the Month" by Glamour magazine, Meili tells us who she was
before the attack-a young Wall Street professional with a promising
future-and who she has become: a woman who learned how to read,
write, walk, talk, and love again...and turn horrifying violence
and certain death into extraordinary healing and victorious life.
With "moments of unexpected grace and insights into life's
challenges‚ ¶.Meili's story-the story the public never knew-is
unforgettable" (The Buffalo News).
