Deborah Spungen will speak on Thursday Jan. In the early morning hours of July 2, , Frank Spungen passed away, just seven weeks after becoming ill. Deb soon realized she had no preparatory course in becoming a widow. There was no handbook to read. Deborah told me that Nancy was an emotionally disturbed child who was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age After being expelled from college, she went to London at the height of the punk rock craze and became involved with Sid Vicious.
Their relationship was punctuated by bouts of domestic violence and drug abuse. There are many great things about this book, but what a stellar writing style the author has. Thoroughly impressed. I will never forget it, and I thank Deborah Spungen for sharing it with us.
I cried a lot, by the way. She tells the story of a daughter she both hated and loved. As a mother, she wanted the best for her three children. Spungen went through a lot with Nancy to try to save her from her own destruction. She never gave up on her and always wanted what was best for Nancy. Death is a part of life. Her death of quality was denied to her. I had to find a way to give it to her, to keep my promise.
Spungen loved her daughter unconditionally and wanted the best for her, but Nancy was blinded with what she thought was her only way to live. Bookmark the permalink. Post navigation.
