THE WAY OF BEING LOST: A ROAD TRIP TO MY TRUEST SELF
“THE WAY OF BEING LOST takes us on the most exquisite journey that one can take—the road home to one’s true self… the journey is beautifully told, universally relevant, and deeply meaningful.”
—Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age
Victoria Price’s THE WAY OF BEING LOST is a heartfelt and candid account of rediscovering one’s sense of self after years of struggle. Despite doing “all the right things” and working to rebuild her life after a period of deep personal and professional turmoil, Victoria still felt something missing. She realized that in order to live her truest life, she had to be willing to become lost, and find her way back to her truest self.
Although initially reluctant, she began to engage with her father Vincent Price’s fans, realizing her own place within the community and connecting with his legacy rather than distancing herself from it. As she got to know her father again through this work, Victoria realized that he embodied traits that she felt had disappeared from her own life: namely, an appreciation of the many joys that the world holds, as long as we’re willing to stop and look at them.
Highlighting the importance of a daily practice of joy (“the pure and simple delight in being alive”), this memoir is inspired by Victoria’s weekly blog and is a reminder of the importance of making peace with our past stories in order to expand our futures and live our most authentic lives.

VINCENT PRICE: A DAUGHTER’S BIOGRAPHY
“Definitive, exhaustively researched and superbly written . . . the reader cannot help being won over.”
Vincent Price is a true Hollywood legend, whose vast and distinguished career – as the voice of The Saint on radio, in such unforgettable films as House of Wax and The Fly, and on the Broadway stage – spanned more than half a century. In addition to being an icon of stage and screen large and small, Price was also an avid art collector, a gourmand, a suspected leftist in the McCarthy era, a dashing and relentless charmer, and a loving father.
“How well can any child know the truth of a parent’s life?” asks Victoria Price. Yet her rare perspective as Price’s daughter, and with access to materials and papers no other biographer will have, makes for a masterfully told tale. Born at the height of Price’s popularity when he was fifty-one, Victoria adored him and his larger-than-life presence. However, when Victoria was twelve Price married his third wife, the vivacious Australian actress Coral Browne, who resented the strong relationship between father and daughter, and consequently did much to keep them apart. Victoria’s account of their reconciliation for the best years of his life, at its close, is this book’s deeply moving climax.
