THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER'A mind-blowing and emotionally honest tale of survival against all odds.' BERNARDINE EVARISTO'A breathtaking memoir...I was so moved by this book.' Oprah'It is startlingly honest and, at times, a jaw-dropping read, charting her rise from poverty and abuse to becoming the first African-American to win the triple crown of an Oscar, Emmy and Tony for acting.' BBC NewsTHE DEEPLY PERSONAL, BRUTALLY HONEST ACCOUNT OF VIOLA'S INSPIRING LIFEIn my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life changing decision to stop running forever. This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond.

This is the path I took to finding my purpose and my strength, but also to finding my voice in a world that didn't always see me. As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination.

They are bogarted, reinvented to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world.

So I wrote this for anyone who is searching for a way to understand and overcome a complicated past, let go of shame, and find acceptance.

For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and Finding Me is a deep reflection on my past and a promise for my future.

My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.
