Coming Soon From Belle Isle Books
The youngest of five children, Kathy grew up feeling that she missed out on the normal genes enjoyed by the rest of her large family. With a sardonic wit and an appreciation for the absurd, Kathy offers up observations from a life lived on the fringes of beauty and pain. From a childhood afflicted by undiagnosed ADHD, to discovering drugs in high school; from cross-country adventures to see The Grateful Dead, to an eventful career working on child abuse cases – Kathy meanders through life, taking each day as it comes without turning away. Wacky on the Junk is a hilarious and poignant debut about life on the opposite end of ordinary.
