Publisher Description

Baby Boy Fisher was raised in institutions from the moment of his birth in prison to a single mother. He ultimately came to live with a foster family, where he endured near-constant verbal and physical abuse. In his mid-teens he escaped and enlisted in the navy, where he became a man of the world, raised by the family he created for himself.

Finding Fish shows how, out of this unlikely mix of deprivation and hope, an artist was born -- first as the child who painted the feelings his words dared not speak, then as a poet and storyteller who would eventually become one of Hollywood's most sought-after screenwriters.

A tumultuous and ultimately gratifying tale of self-discovery written in Fisher's gritty yet melodic literary voice, Finding Fish is an unforgettable reading experience.

Wonderful Biography

This story of "Finding Fish" crosses the boundaries of many human emotions: sad, funny, exciting and when he finds his biological family, a lot of love. Antwone Fisher is one tough man to have gone through everything he did from his very early life right to the end of the book. He amazes me on how he got through all the devastation of his time with the Pickettes. I'm amazed he didn't run away several times. "Fish" is a very strong and courageous man who kept plunging forward in his life no matter what was thrown at him. A very good book and yet another true story of born to sadness and suffering but made it to success.

A true work of art

Poignant and terrifying, your heart breaks for the writers soul. An amazing story in both how it begins and ends for Mr. Fisher.

It should be required reading for every parent and teacher so that they may realize that their actions and inactions have lasting effects.
