“It’s been awhile since I’ve really LOVED a short story collection, but I can finally say that The Dead Husband Project by Sarah Meehan Sirk is definitely one of the best I’ve read in a long time.” — Anne Logan
A Small Madness is a wonderful piece of literature; beautifully written, accessible for pre-teens and teens, and shockingly well-paced for such a short read. I highly recommend this for parents especially because it reminds us why non-judgmental communication is so important.
I doubt you’ve read anything like this; I certainly hadn’t. It’s essentially a private diary that spans the course of a year, written by an 83 year-old man in a nursing home. It’s apparently fiction (although who can really say for sure?) and it is laugh out loud funny.
It’s a story told from the perspective of a young boy (Louis) whose parents are separated, seemingly over his father’s alcoholism.

Well I’m excited to announce that I recently had my first book review printed; a copy can be found online should you wish to see it now. I reviewed Sharon Butala’s second memoir titled Where I Live Now: A Journey Through Love and Loss to Healing and Hope. Spoiler alert-I really enjoyed it!
