Trish Thorpeabout this book: Set in California, this book is in the vein of "Running with Scissors." Go along for the ride with the author ("Fisheye") as she gently guides the reader through jaw-dropping scenes of her life, simultaneously offering intimate details of the Hollywood dream gone horribly wrong.
With remarkably adept word craft from a debut author, Thorpe explores issues that are both intensely private and startlingly universal. Drawn from journals she kept while working through personal issues, "Fisheye" carries us from the depths of the unthinkable to an ultimate place of positive reawakening. Yes there are elements of this story that appeal to us individually, but Thorpe's triumphant emancipation from her past belongs to us all.
"Highly recommended, not just for the rawness of Thorpe's story, but also for her adept story-telling talents. Here's a debut novel that shouldn't be missed." - The Book Review
"In her debut novel "Fisheye", Trish Thorpe tells of her childhood, rocked by familial discord, and of her coming-of-age, which happened all too soon. Her tale is both touching and poignant, striking a delicate balance between the revealing vulnerability of an autobiography and the plot-driven momentum of a good yarn." - Two Harbors Press
