Praise for Chocolates for Breakfast…

“Shocks and shocks again.”

“[An] appallingly frank first novel by an extraordinarily precocious artist.”
-Chicago Tribune

“Not very long ago it would have been regarded as shocking to find girls in their teens reading the kind of books they’re now writing.”
-New York Times

“Found this book in my parents’ library, a risqué looking paperback--read it over and over again. Every naughty thing I hoped life would be like.”
-Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander

“This book is a sexier more cosmopolitan Bell Jar--young girl, manic depression, New York, LA. It is amazing. Everyone who loves The Dud Avocado will go crazy for this novel.”
-Emma Straub, author of Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures
