Sheryl Sorrentino

Author Sheryl Sorrentinoabout this book: Although sheathed in legal drama, at its core The Floater is a provocative psychological and social exploration into the things that hold many of us back—from without and within. The Floater sheds a harsh light on issues of racism, ageism and classism in society and its workplaces, expressed through the frustrations and setbacks of Norma Reyes, its hard-luck Hispanic protagonist.

“I am often asked why I picked this particular cover,” Sorrentino says. “I selected it for three reasons: First, because its depiction of a woman sitting on a toilet fiddling with an electronic device calls to mind the "toilet floater"—the protagonist's demeaning job of the same name. Second, it highlights the pivotal bathroom scene where Norma finally begins to recognize and address her intimacy issues. Finally, it alerts readers to the fact that this book contains "necessarily graphic" adult scenes, to quote N.Y. Times bestselling author, Ken Morris, who has coined The Floater ‘the Rocky of legal dramas--a well-written and spellbinding ride through Lilly Ledbetter-glass ceilings and racial barriers.’ "
