Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Joe Stracci's Whitney is rough, beautiful, and sad, with singular characters who will challenge you and break you heart . . . It's a hot, disturbing book, socially astute and incredibly smart. Stracci writes with a gritty urban mouth and the heart of a poet."—Megan Mayhew-Bergman, author of Birds of a Lesser Paradise

"The story being told is one of love, desire, attachment, and all the things that come between two people who seem fated and ill-fated to be together."—Debra Marquart, author of The Horizontal World

Joe Stracci's first novel, Whitney, was the prose winner of the 2011 New Rivers Press MVP competition.

Synopsis:

A love tragedy in The Bronx reveals a Millenial's fear that happily-ever-after might be the worst thing that could happen.

About the Author

Born and raised in The Bronx, Joe Stracci currently lives in New Fairfield, Connecticut, in a house that is described on the land survey as an “underground dwelling.” His first novel, WHITNEY, was the winner of the 2011 New Rivers Press MVP Competition and will be published in October of ‘13. Stracci's fiction has been published in Alaska Quarterly Review, Inkwell, PANK Magazine, Specter Magazine, and Word Riot. Joe is a devoted fan of the New York Yankees, the New York Jets, and the New York Rangers. Some of his sports pieces have been picked up by DisgruntledMetsFans.com and BaseballBloggersAlliance.com. Joe has an unhealthy obsession with gadgetry, especially Apple products, as well as music.
