Publisher Comments:

How is a woman in her thirties, HIV-positive and fresh out of rehab, supposed to find love and work in contemporary, urban America? Emily Carters critically acclaimed debut traces Glorys journey from her addictions to heroin and alcohol in New York to her rebirth in Minnesotas recovery community. Glory Goes and Gets Some is a streetwise and sardonic look at sex, HIV, addiction, and recovery.

Synopsis:

Carter's stories link and overlap to form a book-length narrative about the trials and tribulations of Glory, now in her thirties and HIV-positive. Once the adored little girl of professionals, she became a rowdy drunk, and then an opiate abuser living in a down-and-out Minneapolis neighborhood.

About the Author

Emily Carters work has appeared in The New Yorker, Story Magazine, and Ruminator Review, among others. The title story in Glory Goes and Gets Some was selected by Garrison Keillor for The Best American Short Stories 1998. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I hated it. I loved it. I wanted to throw it across the room. It made me cry unexpectedly, usually on the subway, which just increased my love/hate relationship with it. In the end I was glad I read it and would recommend it to others, but just be warned that you may have the same kind of reaction and don't give up!
