Exuberance meets desperation. Met people so broken, you wondered, could they ever come back? Disconnected, yearning, broken yet happy? Even possible?
She came to tidy up, vacuum the room, make the bed, and clean the bathroom, and Jim sometimes refused to leave. He’d sit down in a deep, cushy chair and watch her move about with the grace of a feline. She smiled at him often, and he smiled back, mesmerized with her soft gaze and gentle ways. No one had ever been as kind to him as Ada before. She tiptoed around his pain. Concerned, she saw the scared little boy for what he was, hungry for acceptance, and some measure of love.
“Why can’t you be my mummy?” he once asked.
An emotional read!
I really enjoyed your novel Broken/Happy. First off, this is a really brilliant concept and I haven’t read something quite like it. I really enjoyed journeying through these different cultures and exploring the social issues you addressed. I loved that I was being transported all over the world and through space. It was a very emotional read. I think this is an amazing book filled with characters that steal your heart and emotionally charged relationships and ideas that drive the story. I can’t wait to see what you do next. This is a very emotional read and your structure is fantastic. You should be very proud of this piece.

Good book talking about how the author [went] through the experiences of 9/11 and how it affected his life.
It’s a cold morning. I’m freezing my ass off. Creeping behind a brush next to an alleyway, I have been staking the place since before sunrise. It’s crazy how people don’t mind keeping their curtains wide open for all to see inside. Never ceases to amaze me. I love it. I watch her from behind lock the door to her house. No one’s home. Her husband and kids have been gone for thirty minutes now. I need to get to work. If I hurry, I could cut her throat before she gets to the car. In my dreams, I kill the old bitch a thousand times.
This book tells a story of exclusion, of being made the “other”, kept in the dark and figuratively covered with dung; a story of people who embody difference and are subtly kept away from opportunities when it is feared they would threaten the status quo; of aspirations frustrated, if not by legal means, then by willful neglect. Exclusion through frustration is the name of the game.
