"Lucky Jim is a story about how a young man survived a violent childhood home, found his voice as an incredible writer, established a love that was both so right and so wrong, and ultimately found the strength to be his true self. Jim Hart is a master at building relationships, he is charming, funny, and a great listener with a guru's insight. His success in life and business was based on his ability to connect with others, from people recovering in 12-step programs in Upstate New York to those living in the rarified air of Martha's Vineyard. But after more than twenty years of sobriety, a single slip-up triggered an active addiction that threatened his relationships with his then-wife, singer-songwriter Carly Simon, his recovery friends, his son, and even with himself as he began to confront his sexuality."--Back cover.
