Stage Buddy

"While 'The Road Back' could probably benefit from a tighter focus (especially early on), and more narrative cohesion (it gets a little episodic and rambling in parts), as it is, it's enough. The reality of Taubman's struggle comes through in her bold, unashamed recounting of it. More amazing than the story itself is her willingness to share it, and in so doing, to relive experiences many of us would prefer to forget."
