About What Wasn't I Thinking?
Coming in June 2021, novelist Sebastian Stuart’s hilarious and moving memoir, What Wasn’t I Thinking? A Story of Rebellion, Madness, and Surviving My Family. It chronicles growing up in Manhattan in the 1950s, his “turn on and drop out” hippie life in San Francisco in the 1960s. Set against the backdrop of a repressed family navigating the world of mental illness and long-kept secrets. The book also looks at gay cruising and street hustling, theater, and romance, with appearances by Arthur Miller, Liza Minnelli, Clint Eastwood, Bette Midler, Mia Farrow, and more. Alysia Abbott, author of the acclaimed Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father, calls What Wasn’t I Thinking? “A sexy joy ride of a story.”
