Book Giveaway For The Loose Lip Brigade
by Julia Newman (Goodreads Author)
Each character in The Loose Lip Brigade is as human and fallible as we are. They are paralyzed by the reality of their circumstance. Within these moments of anxiety, the collection explores themes of self-doubt and self-indulgence, unveiling the nature of intimacy and the sometimes un-gratifying consequences of acting on whim. There is raw vulnerability on every page, yet enough hope and grace to leave us satisfied.
In seven linked and stand-alone stories, The Loose Lip Brigade will hook you.
In ‘The Hurly Burly,’ teenaged Ramona obsesses over a boy with an overwhelming urgency. She struggles to communicate her anxiety with her ailing mother, perpetuating her mental isolation.
In ‘Bread Crumbs,’ Samantha’s search for her runaway dog exposes familiar wounds from her past with the sharp pain of enlightened grief.
In ‘Noel,’ Emily, a post-college twenty-something is preoccupied with her depression, not to mention her booze. The emotional baggage of sobriety causes more humiliation and propagates the cycle of addiction.
"Written in such a way that captures, draws me in, and also keeps me guessing. A treasure, a gem of a book. The Loose Lip Brigade delivers." ~ J. Harnisch, "Porcelain Utopia" [close]
