Next from New Texture: MILK OF AMNESIA!

Announcing the next book from New Texture: Donna Lethal's Milk of Amnesia!

“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.

Visit Donna Lethal online at her site, Lethal Dose.
