Doris Iarovici | Minus One

In conversation with Virginia Holman author of Rescuing Patty Hearst: Growing Up Sane in a Decade Gone Mad

By turns wrenching, transcendent, and haunting, these rich stories follow characters whose lives are upended by death, estrangement, and loss—and the ways they must negotiate loneliness and absence to rebuild their new realities. Minus One reveals a glimmer of hope and possibility, even in our darkest times.

Doris Iarovici is the author of American Dreaming and Other Stories. She works as a psychiatrist at Harvard University.

In 1975, one year after Patty Hearst and her captors robbed Hibernia National Bank, a second kidnapping took place far from the glare of the headlines. Virginia Holman's mother, in the thrall of psychosis, spirited her two daughters to a cottage on the Virginia Peninsula, painted the windows black, and set up the house as a MASH unit for a secret war. A war that never came.
