Overview

Wretched, masochistic, beautiful, Carofola is a novel about the perils of life decisions; a spellbinding coming-of-age story that is a wild ride through the rapids of one woman's hyper-aware consciousness. Whether navigating the depths of the hypothetical, or the heights of the real, or overcome with the paralysis of cynicism, the narrator of Christine Miscione's first novel subjects everything--lovers, familial bonds, the freedom of foreign lands, her cherished childhood relationships--even her own sanity--to a fierce, judgmental scrutiny. Raw, honest and elegiac, Carafola draws readers into an unforgettable story with an immediacy that is palpable.
