Howard gives an unflinching account of growing up a bullied outcast with no family to officially call his own. Relying on little more than street smarts and grit, he rises from dishwasher to successful entrepreneur. Along the way, a European actress, a schoolteacher, and a fiery Hispanic woman help transform his life.Filled with heart-wrenching suffering as well as heart-lifting joy, Running from the Mirror is an unforgettable testament to the strength of the human spirit.
