And I Don't Want to Live This Life: A Mother's Story of Her Daughter's Murder

Deborah Spungen
For most of us, it was just another horrible headline. But for Deborah Spungen, the mother of Nancy, who was stabbed to death at the Chelsea Hotel, it was both a relief and a tragedy. Here is the incredible story of an infant who never stopped screaming, a toddler who attacked people, a teenager addicted to drugs, violence, and easy sex, a daughter completely out of control--who almost destroyed her parents' marriage and the happiness of the rest of her family."Honest and moving...Her painful tale is engrossing."WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLDFrom the Paperback edition.

There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead,
And when she was good she was very, very good,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Nancy is a troubled child, but her family wants her to know they love her no matter what. And they try everything to help her,to give her a better life. Though she tries their patience every step of the way.

What a beautiful,beautiful book.
There are many great things about this book but what a stellar writing style the author has. Thoroughly impressed.
How can we 'rate' this book, it's a mother's struggle,in trying to give her daughter a quality life,in coping with the pain of her daughter's premature death. This book is a symbol of a mother's unconditional love for her daughter. I will never forget it & I thank Deborah Spungen for sharing it with us. I cried alot by the way :) couldn't help it,it's that great.

And I don’t want to live this life
If I can’t live for you.
