Smart, Addicting, Contemporary Romance with a Very Sharp Edge
Ever drink too much, eat too much, indulged in excess? Ever fall for someone you knew you shouldn’t?
Rachel was an artist, an obsessive, straddling the line of addiction. She sought what most women did—to be successful, married and in love, have healthy kids. It was hard enough attracting a man when she wasn’t heroin thin and perfectly chic like most L.A. women, sparkly but not too bright, as her mother insisted females need be. But in the 1990s, finding a man looking for an equal partner, wanting a woman beside him instead of behind him, seemed the impossible dream.
Then along came Lee…
In the spirit of The Bell Jar (Sylvia Plath, 1963), Disconnected is taut, smart, historical lit chronicling the coming of age for the women’s movement at the end of the 20th century. Rachel and Lee’s tumultuous relationship is reflected in the land of perpetual sunshine imploding with rapid growth, racial tension and violence. Disconnected is an L.A. story, an addicting contemporary romance, and like the city itself, embodies a very sharp edge.
