Juggle and Hide Juggle and Hide is award-winning writer Sharon van Ivan’s dizzying memoir of her unconventional, often harrowing, sometimes hilarious life. With a childhood split between time with her alcoholic mother in Akron, Ohio and her bookie dad in Brooklyn, New York, as well as other challenging family members along the way, she was destined to find comfort on the edge and in the company of highly creative and self-destructive individuals.

Juggle & Hide was named by Kirkus Reviews as one of the best Indie books of 2014.

A compelling set of relationships
Hers is a story of getting drunk and getting sober, of triumphs and failures in her work as an actor and screenwriter, and of exhilarating love affairs, including her twenty-year relationship with the renowned artist Charles Pfahl. Quirky and compelling, Juggle and Hide is a must read, engaging on many levels. Sharon van Ivan takes the reader for a roller coaster ride into the depths of personal tragedy and unexpected outcomes.

“I’ve known Sharon for over a quarter of a century, but nothing could have prepared for the fever dream that is ‘Juggle and Hide.’ This memoir that leaves the reader breathless, and breathless for more. The writing is nimble and urgent, its lack of shame and modesty remarkable. That so much poignancy can emerge from such a dark place makes it all the more indelible and identifiable. Deny your self this experience at your own risk.” Jeff Lipsky, co-founder of October Films and Lot 47 Films
