When a nameless narrator in a dead-end job, a passionless relationship and a with
bad attitude, reads Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island on a whim, she decides to
turn her life around by following in the footsteps of Jim Hawkins. Her best friend is
flummoxed, her sister horrified, and her parents more than a little confused when she
moves back home, $900 Amazon parrot on her shoulder, and begins espousing the
novel’s core values of boldness, resolution, independence and, of course, horn blowing.
Outrageous, hilarious and original, Sara Levine’s debut novel will have you laughing out
loud. She is the chair of the graduate writing program at the School of the Art Institute of
Chicago. Refreshments complements of Europa Books.
