Nathan Rich really made an impression on us with his appearance on Leah Remini's series discussing his time at the Mace-Kingsley Ranch. But then he really knocked our socks off with his book, which we wrote about last week. He's generously given us an excerpt of his memoir, Scythe Tleppo: My Survival of a Cult, Abandonment, Addiction and Homelessness, and we think it gives a good window into the book.

Scientology had a big announcement to make. Everyone was talking about it. Everyone was chattering and guessing about what it was going to be. Word was this was a big one. My mom took me to the event at Flag to hear the news in person, and the second we arrived it was clear the announcement was a big one. I was eleven years old, still on my mother's bad side from the shoplifting incident.

Crowds of Scientologists gathered outside the auditorium. Non-alcoholic champagne was being prepared by Sea Org members, dressed as waiters. People were connecting with each other with grins and excitement. There was an energy in the air.
