Jessica Lucci continues her mis-adventures through mental illness, love, prison, and abuse survival. She makes her home in Massachusetts, USA, and triumphantly avoids the color orange.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love reading biographies and historical fiction featuring strong female protagonists. One of my favorite books is "West With the Night" by Beryl Markham, an autobiography of a British woman who grew up in Kenya to become a race horse trainer and aviator.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I am an Appleite. Reading iBooks on my laptop might not seem convenient considering I could use a tablet. I like to sprawl across my bed on my stomach, propped up on my elbows, with my feet hugging each other in the air as my knees bend. Reading this way is relaxing and painless.
Born with the freedom of the 70s and the independence of the 80s, a suburban middle class girl grows up to shattered dreams broken by child abuse, rape, domestic violence, mental illness, and prison. Passionately conveyed with an honest voice, Jessica Lucci describes her survival in a lifetime of words which is both admirable and horrifying.
