Description

Alane Gray presents her award-winning creative non-fiction memoir Terrible Omens: Happiness is the Other Way. This darkly witty, fast-paced ride through a fifteen-year relationship is an unflinching cautionary tale about what happens when hormones and social expectations lead two people to say “I do” when they should have said “I don’t.” When the signs all pointed to the exits—they kept running the wrong way.
