Sample Book Insights:
#1 I was born in 1976 in New York. My parents, Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, loved me, or at least they grew to love me. My father told me when I was a teenager that he didn’t want me at first, but my mother insisted on having me.
#2 My mother and her sisters were performers, and I was brought up in the music business. I was never baptized, but I went to a French school and was taught by nuns who told me that I was going to burn in hell with all the other sinners.
#3 I loved the stories my grandmother, Gaby, would tell me about 1920s and 1930s Montreal. She had a hunched back, but she was still handsome and strong. She never got married, and she had no children.
#4 I had many female caregivers as a child, including my mother, who was a great and eccentric dresser. The air between my mom and her boyfriend, Pat Donaldson, was often strained because she was also his employer.
