Memoirs of a Hippie Girl by Ann BeCoy is a work of creative non-fiction.

Ann BeCoy recently published her first book entitled:  Memoirs of a Hippie Girl in India which is a work of creative non-fiction. This memoir is a true story she kept secret for forty years.   In 1972 Ms. BeCoy as a tender eighteen year old left her dysfunctional family and abusive father to travel to India with a boyfriend she barely knew.

Within the first month she was kidnapped, trapped and being forced into prostitution.  In order to escape she became a Hash Courier for some Goa hippies.  She was then arrested and spent the next three months in prison in Bombay.  Her account of her time in the women’s prison in Bombay, where she is the only foreigner, the only white person, are positively riveting.

Ms. BeCoy is a survivor, if nothing else.  She survives a riot where she is nearly stoned in a Muslim bazaar, she survives three months in prison where she deals with severe dysentery, cockroaches and rats.  She survives in India by her wits and her guts and finds her way into various Ashrams. She meets extraordinary men, famous gurus, and famous counter-culture heroes later in Nepal.

How To Talk To Crazy People. Brilliantly written with such clarity that I immerse myself in the emotional roller coaster ride with Donna. Honest and open, heart wrenching at times. When Donna finds that there is no money in her account, she is left feeling helpless and powerless but did not let that defeat her. She struggles over every hurdle and is not defeated. Leaves my heartbeat thumping, and anxious to know where the next page would take me. A bitter sweet account of what it is like to live with ‘craziness’ in a world of ‘normal’ people. This rare booking helps us to understand the daily internal struggles of living with depression and how the health care community, here and in Africa approaches and treats it. Her aunt locking the door? (The use of Haladol, in Africa) even with the knowledge that only second-hand and third-hand medicines are sent from America and Europe to Africa?)
