ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Laura Harrington is an award-winning playwright, lyricist and librettist.  She teaches playwriting at MIT and lives in Gloucester, MA.  ALICE BLISS, her first novel, grew out of Harrington’s one-woman musical Alice Unwrapped, which ran off-Broadway in New York and in the Minneapolis Fringe Festival in 2009.

Set in upstate New York, ALICE BLISS is about a 15-year-old girl in 10th grade, named Alice Bliss. She is deeply connected to her dad who is serving in Iraq with his Reserve unit. It’s a transforming coming of age novel about a small town looking after its own in times of loss; the love between an absent father and his daughter; the complicated love between Alice and her mother, Angie; and first love between Alice and the boy next door. It’s a universal story and yet touches upon something very personal: these characters’ struggles amid uncertain times echo our own, lending ALICE BLISS an immediacy and poignancy that are both relevant and real.
