Restoring the Color of Roses

Firebrand Books | 1993


The stench of Chicago’s industrial corridor. A Polish mother. A Croatian nose. Guitar riffs trapped under the skin. The rattle of commuter trains. Blonde beauty queens and beaded yellow bras. Nipples the color of roses. My first book is a collection of memoirs about getting better. My subjects are sex, alcoholism, cultural identity, and the landscapes of a rebuilt life. This is book about falling out of life and coming back restored.
