Summary Mary Jo Buttafuoco's life as a suburban wife and mother in sleepy Massapequa, New York, ended in May 1992, when she was shot in the head on her own front porch. The 'Long Island Lolita' saga sparked a media frenzy. As the years passed and Mary Jo steadfastly stood by her man while Joey Buttafuoco and Amy Fisher continued to make headlines, one question lingered in the minds of women everywhere: Why did she stay for so long? Here, Mary Jo finally answers that question fully and convincingly: she was married to a sociopath, one of countless women who have become enmeshed with a partner who wreaks havoc on the lives around them. Using her own experiences, Mary Jo helps readers determine if they are indeed involved with a sociopath, and offers hope and help for them through her life lessons and her inspiring comeback.--From publisher description.
