TGS 253-The Author Christina McDowell Interview


The Wolf Of Wall Street wasn't quite the big, bad wolf when it ran into Christina McDowell.

The author poignantly, and confrontationally called out director Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio in an open letter for glorifying the exploits of Jordan Belfort--and told the shattering tale of how that exploitation and swindling led to the destruction of her family.

Thanks, in great part, to the actions of her father--a Belfort cohort who also engaged in the behavior. In fact, her father stole her identity and racked up $100,000 in personal debt for his daughter before going to prison.

She tells the entire story in her brilliant memoir, After Perfect, which you can find on Amazon, or her wherever fine books are sold.

Listen to this very skilled writer tell a story of betrayal, loss, and ultimately redemption on this episode of The Tom Gulley Show.
