About the Book

Tired of keeping his life-long secrets, author Dominic Carter, described by some as the best of New York's political television reporters, shares his remarkable, gut-wrenching story of abuse at the hands of his mother in No Momma's Boy.

Shortly after his mother's death, Carter obtains her psychiatric records to learn more about the extent 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 shocking secrets from his past of which he has little or no recollection. Carter learns the revolting details of how his mother attempted to strangle him to death when he was just a toddler and her numerous suicide attempts. As he uncovers these horrific 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 recounts Carter's tremendous highs and lows and how he survived to become the successful journalist that he is today.
