Kate Carroll de Gutes decided to spend a while doing what most of us don’t do: tell the truth. Tell the truth to herself and then to everyone else, and the truth turns out to be funny, hard, sad, sweet, tough, confusing, tender and sharp. It’s your truth, too.
—Sallie Tisdale, author of eight books, including Violation, Talk Dirty to Me, and Stepping Westward
Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear, winner of the 2016 Oregon Book Award for Creative Nonfiction and the Lambda Literary Award, looks at some of life’s biggest dramas: marriage, divorce, and the quest for the perfect fashion accessory. Bestselling author, Stephanie Kallos, says, “On every page, de Gutes reminds us that we all traverse life’s roads with one eye fixed on the receding and mirrored past.”
