  • About the Edition

    Mara Tagarelli is, professionally, the head of a multimillion-dollar AIDS foundation; personally, she is a committed martial artist. But her life has turned inside out like a sock. She can"t rely on family, her body is letting her down, and friends and colleagues are turning away--they treat her like a victim. She needs to break that narrative: build her own community, learn new strengths, and fight. But what do you do when you find out that the story you"ve been told, the story you"vetold yourself, is not true? How can you fight if you can"t trust your body? Who can you rely on if those around you don"t have your best interests at heart, and the systems designed to help do more harm than good? Mara makes a decision and acts, but her actions unleash monsters aimed squarely at the heart of her new community. This is fiction from the front lines, incandescent and urgent, a narrative juggernaut that rips through sentiment to expose the savagery of America"s treatment of the disabled and chronically ill. But So Lucky also blazes with hope and a ferocious love of self, of the life that becomes possible when we stop believing lies.

      In So Lucky, a disconcerting but very necessary book, Griffith presents a protagonist with substance, complexity, and purpose. Mara is so much more than her diagnosis and limitations, but her story underlines the insidiousness of ableism and the lamentable mistreatment and neglect of the chronically ill and disabled among us.3/4(7).   So Lucky by Dawn O’ Porter: Book Review. December 2, December 2, ~ Harshita Gupta. Beth, a new mother working as a wedding planner is struggling to keep her marriage where her husband is no more interested in getting intimate with her. Ruby had a tough time managing her three-year-old daughter, Bonnie after she got separated from.

    Liberating, fearless and contemporary, Dawn O’Porter’s ‘So Lucky’ is a book to be read, treasured and bought as a present. And borrowed from libraries. And generally shouted about as purely excellent craftsmanship and story telling. *as a bonus, Dawn reads the audiobook of ‘So Lucky’ so let’s be grateful for that also*.   "So Lucky is somehow both a tense psychological thriller and a subtle character portrait, packed full of pleasure (so closely observed) and pain (so deep, so real). Nicola Griffith is an essential writer, and with this book she's given us something personal, political, and totally unputdownable." --Robin Sloan, author of Sourdough/5(K).

      So Lucky just won the Washington State Book Award for Fiction! Wow. I am surprised and happy. Both the Seattle Times and Seattle Review of Books have more info so go read those for details on where, what, who etc. What I want to talk about here is my surprise. As the night’s MC, Paul Constant, pointed out, this really was one of the strongest groups of finalists I’ve seen for these awards.   With regards to literary merit, You’ve Been So Lucky Already is easy to read but eloquent. Black’s voice is confident and her turns of phrase spot-on. Furthermore, the book is surprisingly humorous given its subject matter. Black comes across as someone determined to see the bright side of even the worst situations.

Adored the book, SO LUCKY. I’m an Instagram follower of Dawn’s and expected the book to be a bit sillier, based on the fun the has on her IG stories. The book was darker than I expected, but I liked the humor, nonetheless. I found the contemporary analysis of life as we live it, now, on modern social media quite revelatory, deep.

Book Review – So Lucky Dawn O’Porter. 21st August Thank you to Netgalley, Harper Collins and Dawn O’Porter for letting me have a copy of So Lucky ahead of its upcoming release in exchange for a full, honest review.

First of all, let me start by saying this review was always going to be slightly biased. I am a massive Dawn O’Porter. Yay! I’m finally back from being ill!

It’s so good to be back! Being ill was terrible! But I’m so glad that I’m back to making videos – and properly, not hid. PRAISE FOR So Damn Lucky “Lucky’s latest lark brims with the over-the-top ridiculousness that I love about Vegas.

Fans of the series will fall in love all over again, and new readers will look forward to her next escapade.” - Publishers Weekly “Lucky’s the kind of gal who will make any heart beat faster.” - Kirkus Reviews/5(20). Image Description: The cover of Nicola Griffith’s book “So Lucky”.

The title and author’s name appear in a large font made to look like scraps of burning paper. They appear on a black background. When I was asked to write a review of Nicola Griffith’s upcoming novel “So Lucky” (to be released May 15) I had no idea that the most.
