She's Come Undone
A best-seller and New York Times Notable Book of the Year, She's Come Undone whisks you on a wild journey through life with an unforgettable heroine, both heartbreaking and comical. In award-winning author Wally Lamb's remarkable coming-of-age odyssey, a lonely girl satisfies her cravings for love and happiness with her own unsettling solutions. Reeling from her parents' bitter divorce, 13-year-old Dolores Price retreats to the safety of her bedroom. There she fortifies herself with potato chips, six packs of soda, and bags of cookies while attractive families laugh at life on her TV. When adulthood forces her on her own, she rolls out at a startling 257 pounds-left with only her cynicism and wisecracks to protect her. Wally Lamb paints such a realistic picture of a young woman's inner world that you'll have trouble convincing yourself he never was a teenaged girl. With narrator Linda Stephens' dramatic narration, you'll be cheering for Dolores every step of the way as she stumbles through victories and setbacks.

"Mine is a story of craving: an unreliable account of lusts and troubles that began, somehow, in 1956 on the day our free television was delivered...."
Meet Dolores Price. She's thirteen, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye. Beached like a whale in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally rolls into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before really going belly up.
In this extraordinary coming-of-age odyssey, Wally Lamb invites us to hitch a wild ride on a journey of love, pain, and renewal with the most heartbreakingly comical heroine to come along in years. At once a fragile girl and a hard-edged cynic, so tough to love yet so inimitably lovable, Dolores is as poignantly real as our own imperfections. She's Come Undone includes a promise: you will never forget Dolores Price.
