His Bright Light: The Story of Nick Traina

Danielle Steel, "His Bright Light: The Story of Nick Traina"
English | ISBN: 0385333463 | 1998 | EPUB | 320 pages | 6,9 MB


"This is the story of an extraordinary boy with a brilliant mind, a heart of gold, and a tortured soul. It is the story of an illness, a fight to live, and a race against death."

From the day he was born, Nick Traina was his mother's joy. By nineteen, he was dead. This is Danielle Steel's powerful personal story of the son she lost and the lessons she learned during his courageous battle against darkness. Sharing tender, painful memories and Nick's remarkable journals, Steel brings us a haunting duet between a singular young man and the mother who loved him--and a harrowing portrait of a masked killer called manic depression, which afflicts between two and three million Americans.

Nick rocketed through life like a shooting star. Signs of his illness were subtle, often paradoxical. He spoke in full sentences at age one. He was a brilliant, charming child who never slept. And at first, even his mother explained away his quicksilver moods. Nick always marched to a different drummer. His gift for writing was extraordinary, his musical talent promised a golden future. But by the time he entered junior high, Danielle Steel saw her beloved son hurtling toward disaster and tried desperately to get Nick the help he needed--the opening salvos of what would become a ferocious pitched battle for his life.

Even as he struggled, Nick's charisma and accomplishments remained undimmed. He bared his soul in his journal with uncanny insight, in searing prose, poetry, and song. When he was finally diagnosed and treated, it bought time, but too little. In the end, perhaps nothing could have saved him from the insidious disease that had shadowed him from his earliest years.

At once a loving legacy and an unsparing depiction of a devastating illness, Danielle Steel's tribute to her lost son is a gift of life, hope, healing, and understanding to us all.

I want to share the story, and the pain, the courage, the love, and what I learned in living through it. I want Nick's life to be not only a tender memory for us, but a gift to others. I would like to offer people hope and the realities we lived with. I want to make a difference. My hope is that someone will be able to use what we learned, and save a life with it."—Danielle Steel

HIS BRIGHT LIGHT

HIS BRIGHT LIGHT
The Story of Nick Traina
By Danielle Steel
Delacorte Press - 1998
ISBN: 0385333463
Nonfiction / Biography

From the day that Nick was born, he was his mothers joy. Danielle Steel shares her powerful story of her son. Nick had an illness called Bipolar, but for most of his life, neither he nor his mother knew what was wrong with him; maybe that's the reason why he is dead today. Nick's gift for writing was as extraordinary as his mother's, and it showed in his journals, where he bared his soul with uncanny insight, in searing poetry and song. In the end, life became too much for Nick, he committed suicide by taking an overdose of heroin.

This book was very hard for me to read and review, because having had first a hand experience with the conflicts of Bipolar, I understood what Nick went through in his short life. Keep the box of Kleenex handy when you read this book.

The Nick Traina Foundation has been established to benefit mental health, music, child related causes, and other charitable organizations for assorted causes. All the author's proceeds and agents fees from this book will go to the foundation, which will receive direct proceeds from the publisher for all copies sold.

I read this book because of my own bipolar daughter. She's also been suicidal several times, but she'll soon die anyway from hepatitis C or liver cancer. You see, bipolars don't want to take their meds but, since their body needs the meds, they're drawn to cocaine or pain. Read full review

Recommended to Donna by: Kathleen Carrick

In 1998, when Danielle Steel’s son Nick died, what is now “bipolar disorder” was still called “manic-depressive.” In this book from the heart, Steel documents what this condition does to those who have it and those around them, in the context of her son’s short but remark. Read full review

His Bright Light - Danielle Steel Biography product reviews and price comparison

His Bright Light - Danielle Steel Danielle Steel tells the story of her son who had Bi-Polar disorder

This is one of the saddest, most poignant book I ever read! Danielle Steel takes a step away from her usual domestic dramas and tells the story of her son Nick Trania and his Bi Polar Disorder. In this book, she tells about how she (along with her whole family) tried to cope with this illness. The element which touched me the most, apart of course from the fact that she lost her son, is how taboo mental illness can be at times. Most doctors had no idea what Nick Trania was suffering from, and teachers carelessly labeled him as a rebellious spoiled child, instead of trying to examine the death of his eccentricity.


The language is somewhat heavy and too intense at times, but I believe that it is the result of heavy and intense powerful emotions which Danielle Steel, as a mother, must have felt while penning this book. I can just imagine the grief she must have felt while plunging back into the memories as she re-lived both the good and bad moments all over again. I think this is what explains the heavy, sometimes too long sentences. In addition, the flow of feelings is quite raw in the book; there is no undertones or no prim editing to the sentence structure. Every single emotion directly echoes into the words.


This is in fact what I appreciated most about that book. In other Steel novels, readers sense that the emotions and feelings have been edited (as it is with every single novel on earth in any case). But in His Bright Light, the flow of the story is natural. She sometimes breaks from telling a story and goes back into the past, or starts to tell yet another story about her son. There is no structure or logic to the language. According to me, this is what contributes towards making this novel so heart-wrenching and gripping.


Another interesting element in this book is that Danielle Steel includes lots of pictures of herself, her family, her home and mainly of her son, Nick. This is quite an amazing element because Danielle Steel is usually a very private person who rarely gives interviews. In fact, in the book she even says how tightly and carefully she guards her privacy in order to protect her children. The pictures which she so generously shared with all her readers serve to make us understand the person her son used to be. His Bright Light can easily be transposed to His Bright Smile, which is so often present on Nick Trania's face in the pictures.

Overall, the story is merely a poignant story of love, courage and warmth. Hats off to Danielle Steel for not only honoring the memory of her son, but also for unveiling the taboo and shame which is so usually associated with mental disorders such as Bi-polar depression.

If the book interests you, then I would strongly advise you to buy it. All profits go to the Nick Trania Foundation for people with the same illness.

Thanks for reading!

Danielle Fernandes Dominique Schuelein-Steel (born August 14, 1947), better known as Danielle Steel. is an American romantic novelist and author of mainstream dramas .

Best known for drama and romance novels. Steel has sold more than 800 million copies of her books (as of 2005) worldwide and is the eighth best selling writer of all time. and is currently the bestselling author alive. Her novels have been on the New York Times bestseller list for over 390 consecutive weeks [ 1 ] and 22 have been adapted for television.

Contents Early years

Steel was born in New York City. Her parents were John Schulein-Steel, a descendant of the founders of Löwenbräu beer, and Norma da Câmara Stone dos Reis, the daughter of a Portuguese diplomat. [ 2 ] Steel spent much of her early childhood in France, [ 3 ] where from an early age she was included in her parents' dinner parties, giving her an opportunity to observe the habits and lives of the wealthy and famous. [ 2 ] Her parents divorced when she was seven, however, and she was raised primarily in New York City and Europe by her father, rarely seeing her mother. [ 1 ]

Steel started writing stories as a child, and by her late teens had begun writing poetry. [ 4 ] A graduate of the Lycée Français de New York. class of 1963, [ 5 ] she studied literature design and fashion design, [ 4 ] first at Parsons School of Design in 1963 and then at New York University from 1963–1967. [ 6 ]

Early career

In 1965, when she was only 18, Steel married banker Claude-Eric Lazard. [ 7 ] While a young wife, and still attending New York University, Steel began writing, completing her first manuscript the following year, when she was nineteen. [ 4 ] After the birth of their daughter, Beatrix, in 1966, [ 8 ] Steel worked for a public relations agency in New York called Supergirls for several years. A magazine client was highly impressed with her freelance articles and encouraged her to focus on writing and suggested she write a book, which she did. She later moved to San Francisco, and worked for Grey Advertising. as a copywriter.

Personal life

After many years of separation, Steel and Lazard divorced after nine years of marriage. They had one daughter, Beatrix. In 1972 her first novel, Going Home. was published. The novel contained many of the themes that her writing would become known for, including a focus on family issues and human relationships.

Steel married again, briefly with Danny Zugelder. The marriage ended quickly and Zugelder was later convicted of a series of rapes. Steel married her third husband, William Toth, and began divorce proceedings two weeks later.

Steel married for the fourth time in 1981, to vintner John Traina. [ 8 ] Traina subsequently adopted Steel's son Nick and gave him his family name. Together they had an additional five children, Samantha (April 14, 1982), Victoria (September 5, 1983), Vanessa (December 18, 1984), Maxx (February 10, 1986) and Zara (September 26, 1987). [ 7 ] [ 8 ]

Coincidentally, beginning with her marriage to Traina in 1981, Steel has been a near-permanent fixture on the New York Times hardcover and paperback bestsellers lists. In 1989, she was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having a book on the New York Times Bestseller List for the most consecutive weeks of any author—381 consecutive weeks at that time. [ 9 ] Since her first book was published, every one of her novels has hit bestseller lists in paperback, and each one released in hardback has also been a hardback bestseller. [ 1 ] During this time Steel also contributed to her first non-fiction work. Having a Baby was published in 1984 and featured a chapter by Steel about suffering through miscarriage. [ 10 ] The same year she also published a book of poetry, Love: Poems. [ 11 ]

Steel also ventured into children's fiction, penning a series of 10 illustrated books for young readers. These books, known as the "Max and Martha" series, aim to help children face real life problems: new baby, new school, loss of loved one, etc. In addition, Steel has authored the "Freddie" series. These 4 books address other real life situations: first night away from home, trip to the doctor, etc. [ 11 ]

Determined to spend as much time as possible with her own children, Steel often wrote at night, making do with only four hours of sleep, so that she could be with her children during the day. [ 1 ] Steel is a prolific author, often releasing several books per year. [ 9 ] Each book takes 2½ years to complete, [ 4 ] so Steel has developed an ability to juggle up to five projects at once, researching one book while outlining another, then writing and editing additional books. [ 9 ]

Nicholas Traina

In 1993 Steel sued a writer who intended to disclose in her book that her son Nick was adopted by her then-current husband John Traina, despite the fact that adoption records are sealed in California. [ 1 ] A San Francisco judge made a highly unusual ruling allowing the seal on Nick's adoption to be overturned, although he was still a minor. The order was confirmed by a California Appellate Judge, who ruled that because Steel was famous, her son's adoption did not have the same privacy right, [ 1 ] and the book was allowed to be published. [ 12 ]

The son at the center of the lawsuits, Nicholas Traina, committed suicide in 1997 as a result of bipolar disorder. [ 13 ] Traina was the lead singer of San Francisco punk bands Link 80 and Knowledge. In honor of his memory, Steel wrote the nonfiction book His Bright Light. about Nick's life and death. Proceeds of the book, which reached the New York Times NonFiction Bestseller List [ 11 ] were used to found the Nick Traina Foundation, which Steel runs, to fund organizations dedicated to treating mental illness. [ 14 ] To gain more recognition for children's mental illnesses, Steel has lobbied for legislation in Washington, and previously held a fundraiser every two years (known as The Star Ball) in San Francisco. [ 15 ]

1997–present

Steel married for a fifth time, to Silicon Valley financier Tom Perkins. but the marriage ended after 4 years in 2002. [ 16 ] Steel has said that her novel The Klone and I was inspired by a private joke between herself and Perkins. [ 17 ] In 2006, Perkins dedicated his novel Sex and the Single Zillionaire to Steel.

After years of near-constant writing, in 2003 Steel opened an art gallery in San Francisco, Steel Gallery, which showed contemporary work and exhibited the paintings and sculptures of emerging artists. The gallery subsequently closed in 2007. [ 18 ] She continues to curate shows once or twice a year for the Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco.

In 2002, Steel was decorated by the French government as an Officier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. for her contributions to world culture.

She has additionally received:

Induction into the California Hall of Fame, December, 2009.

"Distinguished Service in Mental Health Award" (first time awarded to a non-physician) from New York Presbyterian Hospital, Department of Psychiatry and Columbia University Medical School and Cornell Medical College, May, 2009.

"Outstanding Achievement Award" for work with adolescents from Larkin Street Youth Services in San Francisco, May, 2003.

"Service to Youth Award" for improving the lives of mentally ill adolescents and children from the University of San Francisco Catholic Youth Organization and St. Mary's Medical Center, November, 1999.

"Outstanding Achievement Award" in Mental Health from the California Psychiatric Association

"Distinguished Service Award" from the American Psychiatric Association

In 2006 Steel reached an agreement with Elizabeth Arden to launch a new perfume, Danielle by Danielle Steel.

Steel's longtime residence was in San Francisco. [ 18 ] but she now spends most of her time at a second home in Paris. [ 19 ] Despite her public image and varied pursuits, Steel is known to be shy [ 18 ] and because of that and her desire to protect her children from the tabloids, [ 1 ] she rarely grants interviews or public appearances. [ 20 ] Her 55-room San Francisco home was built in 1913 as the mansion of sugar tycoon Adolph B. Spreckels. [ 21 ]

Writing

Steel's novels have been translated into 28 languages and can be found in 47 countries across the globe. [ 9 ] The books, often described as "formulaic," [ 22 ] tend to involve the characters in a crisis of some sort which threatens their relationship. Many of her characters are considered over-the-top, making her books seem less realistic. [ 23 ] The novels sometimes explore the world of the "rich and famous" [ 22 ] and frequently deal with serious life issues, like illness, death, loss, family crises, and relationships.

Despite a reputation among critics for writing "fluff", Steel often delves into the less savory aspects of human nature, including incest, suicide, divorce, war, and even the Holocaust. [ 9 ] As time has progressed, Steel's writing has evolved. Her later heroines tend to be stronger and more authoritative, who, if they do not receive the level of respect and attention they desire from a man, move on to a new life. [ 7 ] In recent years Steel has also been willing to take more risks with her plots. Ransom focuses more on suspense than romance, and follows three sets of seemingly unconnected characters as their lives begin to intersect. [ 24 ] Toxic Bachelors departs from her usual style by telling the story through the eyes of the three title characters, men who are relationship phobic and ultimately discover their true loves. [ 22 ]

Steel has been criticized for making her books overly redundant and detailed, [ 25 ] explicitly telling the story to readers instead of showing it to them. This sometimes has the effect of making the readers feel like they are on the outside looking in rather than living the story. [ 26 ]

To avoid comparisons to her previous novels, Steel does not write sequels. [ 4 ] Although many of her earliest books were released with initial print runs of 1 million copies, by 2004 her publisher had decreased the number of books initially printed to 650,000 due to the decline in people buying books. However, her fan base is still extremely strong with Steel's books selling out atop charts worldwide. [ 27 ]

Twenty-two of her books have been adapted for television, [ 28 ] including two that have received Golden Globe nominations. One is Jewels. the story of the survival of a woman and her children in World War II Europe, and the family's eventual rebirth as one of the greatest jewelry houses in Europe. [ 9 ] Columbia Pictures was the first movie studio to offer for one of her novels, purchasing the rights to The Ghost in 1998. [ 28 ] Steel also reached an agreement with New Line Home Entertainment in 2005 to sell the film rights to 30 of her novels for DVDs.

His Bright Light: Danielle Steel: 9780552164191

His Bright Light Description

This is the story of an extraordinary boy with a brilliant mind, a heart of gold and a tortured soul.' From the day he was born, Nick Traina was his mother's joy. By nineteen, he was dead. This is Danielle Steel's powerful story of the son she lost and the lessons she learned during his courageous battle against darkness. Sharing tender, painful memories, Steel brings us a haunting duet between and singular young man and the mother who loved him - and a harrowing portrait of a masked killer called manic depression. Nick rocketed through life like a shooting star. He spoke in full sentences at the age of one. He was a brilliant, charming child who never slept. His gift for writing was extraordinary, his musical talent promised a golden future. But by the time he entered junior high, he was hurtling towards disaster. His mother tried desperately to get him the help he needed - the opening salvos for what would become a ferocious battle for his life. At once a loving legacy and an unsparing depiction of a devastating illness, Danielle Steel's tribute to her lost son is a gift of life, hope, healing and understanding to us all. 'I want to share the story, and the pain, the courage, the love, and what I learned in living through it. My hope is that someone will be able to use what we learned, and save a life with it'show more

Review quote

"A moving and haunting book" Daily Express "A powerful and personal story. His bright light is Danielle Steel's legacy and tribute to her son, as well as haunting depiction of manic-depression" Saturday Evening Post "Danielle Steel has written a spellbinding account of her son's struggle with bipolar illness. Valuable insights. We come away with a heightened sensitivity that perhaps only a writer of this distinction could convey, of what it is like to try to cope with a child with a severe psychiatric disorder. This is a book about what we can do - as parents, as physicians, as human beings" Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry "Reading His Bright Light moved me to tears as the memoir captures so vividly the ferocious nature of mental illness. Sharing [Nick's] story will save lives. His Bright Light will make a difference for countless others" -- Laurie Flynn, Executive Director, NAMI (The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) "[A] searing portrayal of the loss of jer 19 year-old son. Ms Steel's heartfelt homage to her son may very well help others save a life" Dallas Morning Newsshow more
