“I drink, I hurt myself and the people around me, and then I write.”
By Clancy Martin/Read by Cassie James
About The Audiobook
Brett is in Central America, away from her husband, when she begins a love affair with his friend, Eduard. Tragedy and comedy are properly joined at the hip in this loosely autobiographical book about infidelity, drinking, and the postponing of repercussions under the sun. Though coming undone is something we all try to avoid, Martin reminds us that going off the rails is sometimes a part of the ride.
"Laugh-aloud funny...painfully honest." –The New York Times
"[Martin] wants to question our assumptions, and his own, about what love means, how it operates, the demands of living for other people and living for ourselves." –L.A. Times
“Martin manages to elegantly imbue his simple little book with complex insights and layers of meaning. That is the novel’s chief pleasure: knowing it should be so bad, but finding it so, so good.” –Electric Literature
