Sands Hall at Book Passage



In Flunk. Start., Sands Hall chronicles her slow absorption into the Church of Scientology. Her time in the Church, the late 1970s, includes the secretive illness and death of its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, and the ascension of David Miscavige. Hall compellingly reveals what drew her into the religion — what she found intriguing and useful — and how she came to confront its darker sides. In this candid and nuanced memoir, Hall recounts her spiritual and artistic journey with a visceral affection for language, delighting in the way words can create a shared world. However, as Hall begins to grasp how purposefully Hubbard has created the unique language of Scientology — in the process isolating and indoctrinating its practitioners — she confronts how language can also be used as a tool of authoritarianism.
