DRIVING WITH DEAD PEOPLE

Do yourself a favor, be the first one of your friends to read this book and tell everyone else about it. This book is going Glass Castle big, you heard it here first.

In this FUNNY book about a childhood that is not funny at all, you'll fall in love with Monica. She'll be on "Oprah" soon, I'm sure, and is already scheduled to be on the Diane Reams Show next week on NPR. Monica has a background in theatre and it shows. She can deliver a line on the page, as well as on a stage. The woman is Lucille Ball funny to watch, Ellen DeGeneres funny to listen to, and David Sedaris funny to read.

This book cracks open the horrors of incest, while remaining readable throughout, beyond readable, damn right enjoyable.

Jump over to Amazon.com right now and pre-order it. It will be in bookstores everywhere, Target too, on Tuesday, March 6th.

Monica is the real deal. A real writer, a real survivor, a real hoot, and a real blessing to all.

You absolutely MUST send this critique to all the newspapers. It is perfectly written.

Right there with you, Sister. Monica's the real deal as a writer, as a person, as a friend.

Love Terry's idea of sending this fabulous critique to the newspapers. Meantime, you might do a version of it on amazon.com. They're shipping as of today.

love.

I love the tag-team effort! Amazing review--if I hadn't already rushed and ordered this book, I would do it right now!

I'm always looking for a good book, esp a memoir. Thank to you and Jennifer for the recommendation.

Monica Holloway said...

Carrie - Thank you, my dear friend. The support you and Jennifer have given me, as well as all the amazing women I met last weekend has been incredible. I feel each and every one of you around me and your incredible stories are right here with me. Here's to healing the world. I love you.
