Book Blurb Friday
Lisa is showing us this picture today, asking us to write a book blurb for the possible story. Lisa and many of her followers are masters at creating possible books. Their ideas are creative and boundless. My own seem rather trite,but I am determined to toss one out when I can, try to exercise my mind, hoping someday to create a great book blurb! It is fun anyway, and if you would like to read more blurbs and to play along, go to http://www.writinginthebuff.net/2011/06/book-blurb-friday-15-final-blackout.html?showComment=1307660551610#c4442667205635060183 for the guidelines. My 148 words are below.
Joey Palladini had dreams. Dreams of getting out of Pasta Town, otherwise known as Poston, a town founded on working class people from Italy. They came to toil in the coal and lead mines when they were needed and now were stuck in circular lives of family, work, marriage and death. Joey wanted to break free of the entire cycle.
But the night of his senior party, with his State U acceptance at home on his desk, he let down and risked locking in his fate with Emilia and the rest. Beer at the river’s edge, Emilia’s bosom heaving out the top of her white t-shirt like mounds of provolone, and his own Levi’s quivering at the sight was risking turning the feast of life he wanted into crumbs at the table. Would Joey come to his senses in time or would he yield to the night’s temptations?
