Winner of Swallow by Tonya Plank & Update

What a crazy month. Those of you that don’t know, I run a bookkeeping firm in my “real” life which means that I’m the worst mom, wife, friend and blogger for the entire month of January. I’m pretty much a shadow mumbling 1099 and W2 as I fall randomly asleep at 11am for an hour nap. 🙂 I’m still very much here, I promise!

Now then, when we last left off, we had us a contest to draw a name for. I told random.org to chose a number between 1 and 13 and it was lucky commenter #1. Donnette, congrats and I have emailed you to claim your prize.

More reviews coming soon, I hope to catch up a bit this weekend, maybe even tomorrow 🙂

Sophie Hegel is a shy New York lawyer who hails from small-town Florence Arizona, known not for the Renaissance but for housing a large prison. She’s just graduated from Yale Law School and landed her first job when, one evening, during dinner with her fiancé, she feels a fist-like ball form at the base of her throat. A form of the psychological condition Globus Sensate, this “fist-ball” wreaks havoc on her life, causing her difficulty eating, speaking, and eventually even breathing. With a cast of characters that includes a pornographer father, a sister with a knack for getting knocked up by denizens of the town pen, a painter of male nudes, an eccentric Sing Sing-residing client, a tough-talking fashion maven and a bevy of privileged Manhattan lawyers and judges, Swallow is a dark comedy about the distance that can separate fathers and daughters, and about a young woman’s struggle to survive in a world of pedigreed professionals for which she has no preparation.
