Done from keeping his life-long secrets from the world, Dominic Carter, considered by many as one of the best political television reporters in New York, shares his extraordinary, gut-wrenching story of abuse at the hands of his mother in No Momma’s Boy. Soon after his mother’s death, Dominic Carter acquires her psychiatric records to find out more about the magnitude of her struggles. He always knew she was plagued by mental illness, but because of their limited relationship, he never truly understood its severity.
In addition to revealing that she was a paranoid schizophrenic, the records contain very surprising secrets from his past of which he has little to know recollection. Dominic Carter learns the abominable specifics of how his mother tried to strangle him to death when he was just an infant and her many suicide attempts. As he uncovers these appalling details, Carter awakens memories of unspeakable acts that he suffered at her hands. From a childhood of sexual and physical abuse to a meaningful career attending social events at the White House and interviewing Nelson Mandela, No Momma’s Boy tells the true story of Carter’s tremendous highs and lows and how he endured to become the successful journalist that he is today.
