Being Green: A Colorful Journey by Howard Green is a captivating autobiography that takes the reader on a journey through a dysfunctional family, insecurities, and sexual exploration to inner freedom. Howard’s story begins with a very tragic statement: “I never knew my mother as a sane woman. She had two nervous breakdowns before I was born, and unfortunately, she bore the scars throughout her life.” Having an insane mother wasn’t the only one troubling thing in Howard’s life; his father was both physically and verbally abusive and his brother was hardly home. How can a child in such circumstances grow up to be emotionally healthy? Read on to find out the joys and pains of his journey as he gets married, discovers his sexuality, and makes many attempts to escape his own reality. Also discover a man who comes to terms with himself and develops a successful career with 20th Century-Fox Film Corporation.
Howard Green’s autobiography is a spellbinding story that is told in a unique and confident voice, a story that comes across with a rare sense of honesty. His journey towards self-acceptance hasn’t been an easy one, but it has been one that will, undoubtedly, inspire many readers like him. Although this is an autobiography, one doesn’t expect to read a string of events happening in the protagonist’s life. Instead, it is a thoughtful, introspective look at his life, a look that allows the reader to see the many hurts and bruises in his soul so they can savor the healing he experiences. Being Green: A Colorful Journey is inspiring, a well-crafted autobiography with a unique message of hope for readers, a message that says: “We can also change our stars.”
