Many Voices Project #128: Whitneyby Joe Stracci
Synopses & Reviews
"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.
A love tragedy in The Bronx reveals a Millenial's fear that happily-ever-after might be the worst thing that could happen.
