Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Jen Epstein was born a worrier. As a child she worried her uvula would break off and she would swallow it and choke to death. Then she worried high-voltage wires would get her. Eventually she was diagnosed with learning disabilities and later, obsessive compulsive disorder. Whether pondering motherhood or refusing to drink ice water in Costa Rica, Epstein, with her self-deprecating humor, exposes her inner demons with stories that are sometimes heartbreaking and always deeply personal, tapping into the minutiae of her life with distinctive style and themes of universal appeal. Epstein has her MA in media studies from the New School and completed a documentary arts fellowship at UnionDocs in Brooklyn, NY while working for the nonfiction media company, Discovery.
