8:52 am
it is raw. it is a revealing memoir called "dirtbag, massachusetts. all about the many lives he's lived to become the man we all know and love. hi, isaac. >> hi, hoda. thank you so much for having me on it's so good to see you. >> i am so -- i always look at you a certain way when you came here as this enthusiastic, bubbly, effervescent guy i actually didn't know how it all began. >> yeah. >> and to read from the very beginning that you viewed yourself as a little boy coming into this world, and i guess you would have said the words, i am a mistake. >> yep, absolutely right >> tell me about that. >> listen, when you're a child growing up in the situation that i grew up in, and the situation was my parents were married when they had me just to different people and from a very early age i viewed myself as a bomb that exploded their lives and that was something that i carried with me for a very, very long time, which meant that i really was undervaluing myself i really saw myself as basically a troublemaker, somebody that took these two families, their separate families, and then blew
8:53 am
them up. and that was an incredibly hard thing to work through. but that's what this book is about. it's about my very tough childhood, but then also about how i reacted to that childhood. and for years and years there was wildness there were a lot of things, like you said, you would not have known because i would not have shared them publicly, and then it's about the therapy, coming back together as a family. so that's the arc of this book and the journey i've been on >> we talk about what happened in your childhood. it was difficult there was violence there was poverty. you went through hell and back and i keep thinking, like, but you did say the one thing your parents gave you was books you always had books and this is an interesting question, but without books in your life, if they had not introduced those to you, who would i be talking to today? >> let me tell you, this is something i like to say, i grew up in inner city boston but made our way to central massachusetts. i think i would still have my
8:54 am
bubbly energetic self. >> you do? >> i think i would have. i would have never had dreams or ambitions. what books gave me was a map out of the life that i was living and towards something larger and more spectacular and because of that, that gift that my parents gave me, they were struggling in so many different ways on their own, but the one thing they gave me was this love of books and through that, through reading, i was able to find a different light and that just -- you know, it's something i still treasure about them we have a complicated relationship, but i know they gave me that gift and in a way this book is for them. >> to think that you went through all the things you went through as a young boy, and i was just imagining your mom reading the book again, there are things about abuse, she talked about how she was contemplating an abortion. she told you that when you were 8. she slapped you on the stomach and said if you weren't so fat, maybe i wouldn't have to keep buying you clothes things like that you hand her this book, she reads it what was the first thing she said >> she wrote me a letter that i've probably been waiting for my entire life without even knowing and the first thing sheep said was, i'm sorry. and that was incredible. to just receive that was so incredible didn't want it to be a tidy ending, and i'm not going to
8:55 am
give away too much here, but it's an ongoing conversation and so to hand it to her, have her take the time to read it, which she didn't have to do and i told her that, she took the time to write me a letter saying i'm sorry and the next line was even more freeing in a way what she said was, i had no idea you were carrying this i had no idea you were carrying this and that's when you realize as a child those years were most of my life. it felt so difficult and so hard because it was everything. those years for her were a hard section of her already long life >> that was your whole life. >> that was my whole life. so i think for her she then did see me become this bubbly effervescent person. okay, he's gotten through it
8:56 am
and for her to say i had no idea you were carrying this, i'm so sorry, just meant the world to me >> this book, isaac, has everything you seem to be searching for your way home. and in the last few seconds we have, did you find up way? >> 100%. that is what this book is about. is it about a family that explodes apart but then in a very different shape but still beautiful shape comes back together >> can i tell you if you pick up this book and up should, "dirtbag, massachusetts," you will not put it down isaac, i thought i knew you. it comes back together. >> if you pick up this book, and you should, dirt bag massachusetts. you will not put it down. i thought i knew you isaac. now i really know you. thank you so much. i really appreciate it. we are back after this.
