Synopses & Reviews
JESSICA DORFMAN JONES had dutifully achieved everything she thought she was supposed to: marriage, law degree, high-paying job, nice apartment. But she was miserable and felt like she was living a life that wasn't hers. Desperate to change her status quo and figure out who she really was, Jessica went about making a change by demolishing the life she knew. She threw her good-girl image aside and set out to unleash the very bad girl she had never before tried to be. Embracing the deliciously debauched world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, Jessica leaves behind her sweet and well-behaved husband for the ultimate bad-boy guitar player, starts her own band, and parties harder than she had ever thought possible. Eventually, in the midst of her self-created chaos, the wildest thing of all happens. She figures out who she is, who she most definitely is not, and what might, if she's lucky, come next. Klonopin Lunch is Jessica’s provocative, incendiary, and uncensored journey into a life that, at last, makes her truly happy.
About the Author
A die-hard native New Yorker, graduate of the Nightingale-Bamford School (she still has the white gloves to prove it), Kenyon College, and Cardozo Law School, Jessica Dorfman Jones started her life in publishing in the publicity department of Simon & Schuster. She continued on, among other jobs, as a literary agent (responsible for bringing Legally Blonde into the world) and book packager. She is the author of The Art of Cheating: A Nasty Little Book for Tricky Little Schemers and Their Hapless Victims, which she is adapting into a feature film. Jessica is currently at work on a novel, as well as a musical titled Friends Like These about the triumphs and trials of female friendships. She is also the cofounder of Glass Elevator Media, a production company based in LA and New York. Jessica lives and works in New York City and her writing is frequently interrupted by her tiny dog Oscar’s loud indignation at not being catered to 24/7.
