    W4W BOOK LAUNCH - Tiffanie de Bartolo "Sorrow"

    W4W BOOK LAUNCH - Tiffanie de Bartolo "Sorrow"

    TIFFANNIE DE BARTOLO launches SORROW 

    SAN FRANCISCO – It’s never too late to become who we’re meant to be, or to summon the courage to develop into the person whom we desire to be.

    Indie record label owner and author Tiffanie DeBartolo’s newest novel, “Sorrow,” (Oct. 20, Woodhall Press) expertly examines this idea through the lenses of art, music and love. Inspired in part by the music of The National, the book is both a humorous and emotional assessment of the millennial generation.

    Sorrow is a poignant story about friendship and love, art and music, and how these pursuits can save us from ourselves.

    Joe Harper has backpedalled throughout his life. A once-promising guitar prodigy, he's been living without direction since abandoning his musical dreams. now into this thirties, having retreated from every opportunity he's had to level up, he has lost his family, his best friend, and his own self-respect.

    But Joe finds an unlikely path to redemption when he starts working as a carpenter for the bohemian conceptual artist October Danko. The job returns him to his hometown, loaded with bittersweet reminders of his former life, in the shadows of his beloved redwood trees.

    Sorrow is a moving novel that explores masculinity and suspended adolescence, all the while begging the questions:


    Can courage be learned?


    And is it ever too late to follow your heart?

Safe and Supported

Thank you for such honesty and generosity. I love every episode. As an aspiring writer, I learn so much from your conversations, and the guest authors. It’s truly wonderful to listen to women’s stories and to feel a positive force within a world desperate for change. ‘Yay’ for you two! From JAMortimerwriter.
