I love this book. Her voice is authentic, the stories are funny and sad and connect to the human spirit, and her writing is witty and inspired.
From the early promo:
(The dirt on '70s suburban hippies!)
(The inside story on confused queer love in the '80s!)
This book has it all--love, shame, carob, suburban violence, Barbie envy...
Here is a link to Ariel's website, where you can purchase this fabulous book,All the Pretty People !
Award-winning editor and memoirist Ariel Gore is exploring beauty, shame, Barbie-envy, '70s California pop culture, '80s love, and first cigarettes with a new novella of flash-memoir stories.
As spoken-word pieces, the stories in All the Pretty People have been wowing audiences from Portland to San Francisco to Albuquerque and beyond.
