About the author and her memoir:
Joanne Greene came of age during the 1960s and 70s, a turning point for women in the United States. Doors were opening wider for women than they ever had, and Joanne walked through as many as she could. She studied theater and film at Northwestern University, presenting a weekly jazz show at Emerson before diving headfirst into San Francisco radio and television, where she hosted and produced award-winning feminist and other timely features and talk shows for decades.
 
Throughout, she worked at having a great marriage and being an exemplary parent. Underlying her high-achieving life, however, was a sometimes-destructive need for control. Vulnerability and dependency were okay for other people, but not for Joanne, whose self-value was tied to how in charge, how together, and how productive she was. Then, a freak, traumatic accident set Joanne on a journey of self-discovery. By Accident chronicles this journey and Joanne's revelation that her true power would come in the still moments, the moments when she loosened her grip and even allowed herself to crack, finding beauty and possibility in her fragility.
