    True Love w/ Sarah Gerard

    True Love w/ Sarah Gerard

    A reading from the novel True Love by Sarah Gerard. Out now from Harper.

    https://www.harpercollins.com/products/true-love-sarah-gerard

    Nina is a struggling writer, a college drop-out, a liar, and a cheater. More than anything she wants love. She deserves it.

    From the burned-out suburbs of Florida to the anonymous squalor of New York City, she eats through an incestuous cast of characters in search of it: her mother, a narcissistic lesbian living in a nudist polycule; Odessa, a single mom with even worse taste in men than Nina; Seth, an artist whose latest show is comprised of three Tupperware containers full of trash; Brian, whose roller-coaster affair with Nina is the most stable “relationship” in his life; and Aaron, an aspiring filmmaker living at home with his parents, with whom Nina begins to write her magnum opus.
