Mothership: A Memoir of Wonder and Crisis


A dazzling, evidence-based account of one man’s quest to heal from complex PTSD by turning to endangered coral reefs and psychedelic plants after traditional therapies failed—and his awakening to the need for us to heal the planet as well.

“Wrenn’s memoir is a brave, beautiful testament to love both past and present, a meticulously-researched account of our relationship to ourselves and the world. Mothership does for coral what Richard Powers’s The Overstory does for trees. I can’t wait to assign this to my students.” —Garrard Conley, New York Times bestselling author of Boy Erased
