In early 2019 Rick Morton was diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder, a diagnosis that set him on a journey to rediscover love and to get better. Not cured, not fixed. Just, better. Grounded in the personal, My Year of Living Vulnerably spans continents and cultures, offering sharp and often witty observations, reportage and insights into contemporary society and its failings. Today Rick discusses the themes of his new book — love, connection, loneliness, masculinity and trauma — with NTWC Program Manager Rita Horanyi, the seeds of which can be found in his critically acclaimed memoir, One Hundred Years of Dirt.
