Shirley Melis: Banged-Up Heart

Signing/Readings

Banged-Up Heart is an intimate and clear-eyed account of finding love late and losing it early and of the strength it takes to fall madly in love a second time, be forced to relinquish that love too soon, and yet choose to love again. It takes you deep inside an ordinary woman, her deeply felt grief butting up against her desire for more than companionship: passion, sexual fulfillment, and self-realization.
