Excerpt

Triangles

#LINK<>##LINK<>#TRIANGLES

Scientists say every action

initiates an equal and opposite

reaction. I say that’s just the start.

I say

every action initiates a most

unequal and unpredictable

chain reaction, that

every

filament of living becomes

part of a larger weave, while

remaining identifiable. That each

line

of latitude requires several

stripes of longitude to obtain

meaning. That every universe

is part

of a bigger heaven, a heaven

of rhythm and geometry,

where a heartbeat is the apex

of a triangle.

Hubert, October 9, 2011 (view all comments by Hubert)
Very clever writing of Hopkins in this book. Her experiment with the poetry format, the three different perspectives, the different fonts all make for a perspective on the lives of three women that has more dimensions than an ordinary novel. The characters of the three women are well defined, broad and deep, and give an insight in the lives of women who we would call 'ordinary', but turn out to have deep motives for what they do or not do. The story keeps a tension, problems are solved at some point, yet the lives of the three characters will go on when the book is finished, the book is a glimpse in three lives, unfinished and satisfactory at the same time.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Teenage angst is all grown up — but no less fraught with sexual misadventure and gnawing insecurity — in Hopkins's fearless first novel for adults written entirely in verse. For restless writer and mother-of-three Holly, her looming 40th birthday prompts increasingly risky sexual behavior (inspiration for her sizzling-hot erotica), even as her rebellious teenage daughter charges down her own dangerous sexual path. Meanwhile, Andrea, one divorce and one affair with a married man already under her belt, finds comfort with Holly's husband after he discovers that Holly has been doing her erotica homework with another man. And while Andrea's sister Marissa cares for her dying five-year-old daughter and her gay teenage son, her marriage crumbles under the weight of betrayal, anger, and guilt. Written in her signature poetic verse style, Hopkins (Crank) delivers a raw and riveting tale of love and forgiveness that will captivate readers." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
"Synopsis" by , THREE FEMALE FRIENDS FACE MIDLIFE CRISES IN A NO-HOLDS-BARRED EXPLORATION OF SEX, MARRIAGE, AND THE FRAGILITY OF LIFE.

Holly: Filled with regret for being a stay-athome mom, she sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Will it bring the fulfillment she is searching for?

Andrea: A single mom and avowed celibate, she watches her friend Holly’s meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for—a committed relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly’s castaway husband?

Marissa: She has more than her fair share of challenges—a gay, rebellious teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts.

As one woman’s marriage unravels, another’s rekindles. As one woman’s family comes apart at the seams, another’s reconfigures into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman’s up is another one’s down, and all of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness.

Unflinchingly honest, emotionally powerful, surprisingly erotic, Triangles is the ultimate page-turner. Hopkins’s gorgeous, expertly honed poetic verse perfectly captures the inner lives of her characters. Sometimes it happens like that. Sometimes you just get lost.

Get lost in the world of Triangles, where the lives of three unforgettable women intersect, and where there are no easy answers.

"Synopsis" by , A piercing look at the dark side of love and friendship for three women, as they face infidelity, the trials of parenting teens, and turning 40.
