An unapologetic, passionate and searing exploration of love.
Tanya, Annie and Lorenzo desperately seek love in a loveless world. Shackled by grinding poverty and substance abuse they're difficult to like, let alone love. They've been abused. They're abusive. But it is love in all its distorted and mutated forms that holds them together.

“To write about those who are forsaken, those we cross the street to avoid meeting, those we find ugly and loud and uncouth, those we call trash and miserable, and those who do terrible things interests me. To write these characters without sentimentality and without judgement, above all to place them in the world that has created them, is a challenge. As it is to capture the yearning, the excruciating desire for something else, something better, something kinder, pleasurable even, in these characters who don’t have the words, or peace of mind.” Patricia Cornelius
