Love Will Make You Drink and Gamble, Stay Out Late at Night brings a number of Shelly Lowenkopf’s previously published short stories together in a single volume. All the stories revolve around life in Santa Barbara, the oceanside city north of Los Angeles, where people go after they’ve burned out in San Francisco and L.A. Yet there’s no safe haven anywhere. Interwoven into Santa Barbara’s picturesque setting, the people in these twelve stories reveal what their hearts and souls encounter in relationships. Their misreadings, mistakes, and misadventures bare what happens to people who love another.
Cassandra's Review- Humor and strength are two of the very special charms this books holds. The author is outstanding and can get right to the heart of a good story. I love that this book has short stories that give you time to read one and then sit with it a bit as you go about your day. When you come back for more, there is no disappointing.
