As quickly as his face disappeared, so did his mother and father.
Just three days after he was born, Howard Shulman contracted an infection that devoured his nose, lips, lower eyelids, tear ducts, and palate. Abandoned at the hospital by his parents, he became a ward of New Jersey under the care of a state-employed surgeon who experimentally rebuilt his face.
Running from the Mirror is a poignant story of one man's struggle to survive against staggering odds. 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. When a chance event shatters his world once again, he must make a daunting choice: live in the shadows of his painful past or summon the strength to make peace with it.
Filled with heart-wrenching suffering as well as soul-lifting joy, Running from the Mirror is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
