Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eight years in the making, One More for the People is the first collection of Martha Grover's zine Somnambulist. Playful, wry, and conversational, One More for the People chronicles three generations in the life of the Grover family. As these idiosyncratic characters reluctantly confront adulthood, one Grover is always there to take notes. But after she's diagnosed with a rare and potentially fatal disease (whose 81 symptoms include dramatic changes to her appearance, not to mention the dreaded possibility of having to move back home), One More for the People becomes something unexpected: a survival guide. In the spirit of Lucy Grealy's Autobiography of a Face, Grover transforms her own misfortune into a tale as unsettling as it is entertaining.

Review:

"One More for the People is a beautiful, substantial book, both in content and design." Bitch Media

Review:

"[T]here were several moments where I found myself putting down Portlander Martha Grover's One More for the People to take deep, stabilizing breaths." The Portland Mercury

I laughed and I cried reading Martha Grover's book, "One More for the People." Her writing skills are excellent, but more compelling is the honesty, attention to detail and awareness of the world around her as she recounts her upbringing, her illness and her relationships. I highly recommend this book and I have bought several copies as gifts. This young author has a bright future and I hope to read more from her.
