“A trip. Maybe the funniest ‘my family is fucked’ memoir I've ever read.”
–Eddie Muller (Dark City Dames, The Distance)
“I am amazed, after reading these tales of her childhood in a Boston Irish-Catholic version of a John Waters movie, that she grew up as sane and funny and non-crazy as she has ... This is addictive, obsessive reading.”
–Eve Golden (Platinum Girl, Vamp)
“Visit Kerouac's grave and share a few smokes with Donna, the only punk rocker at Lowell High School in the early ’80s. Her ex-nun mom, bookie-bartender dad, and bank-robber brother fill out the family in this intense memoir with tales that take turns with the comic and the tragic.”
–Doug Simmons (Subway News editor; columnist, Boston Phoenix)
Set for release in Fall 2011, the book is edited by Chris D. (author of A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die) and includes his introduction.
