With vulnerability, grit, and hard-won humor, acclaimed novelist Joshua Mohr returns with his first book-length work of nonfiction. Sirens provides a harrowing and complicated account of his years of substance abuse and culpability. Joshua calls it his
"love letter" to his daugher and leaves no rock from his sordid past unturned--from his childhood swilling fuzzy navels as a latch-key kid, through the black-outs and fist-fights, his first failed marriage to his path to sobriety, and the birth of his daughter and the three strokes he suffers in his 30s that reveal he has a literal hole in his heart.
