Anna Incognito by Laura Preble - Book Tour


Laura Preble

Literary Fiction/Women's Fiction

Lots of narrative pull...wonderfully complicated. - Jincy Willett, author of The Writing Class, and anthologized by David Sedaris in Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules.

Anna Colin Beck knows all too well what can happen when things go wrong
really wrong. So, she's spent the last several years living an extremely
regimented life at home, doing everything she can to avoid subjecting
herself to the torments of a germ-infested world. Everything must be
just so, and when things don't go to plan, she punishes her own
body...and that still hasn't helped alleviate her pain.

After a chance meeting in a laundromat, she finds herself completely infatuated
with another person, something that hasn't happened to her in a long
time. Dr. Edward Denture is seemingly brilliant and magnetic...and in
the blink of an eye, she's attending intense somatic therapy sessions as
his newest client. The more he draws from her, the further their
relationship grows, until it's crossed countless lines and consumed Anna
with a fierce toxicity. And before she knows it, she finds herself
buckled into the driver's seat of a powder-blue El Dorado for a solo
cross-country road trip, determined to stop his wedding. It's a trip
that will test every limitation she's ever set for herself, and though
she's planned extensively for all contingencies, there are some twists
and turns you just can't prepare for.

With wry observations on the intersection of luck, fate, and life, Anna Incognito is a searing, darkly witty exploration of what it means to be alive.

"Rich with witticism in the face of painful realities and evoking 
lyrical truisms throughout, from of a rating scale of 1 – 5 this novel 
is so off-the-charts good, it deserves a 10." LINK HERE 4/4
"The writing was captivating...This book would be great for readers who
are struggling with mental health or for those trying to understand it 
better. Are you ready to go for a drive with Anna?. Buckle up, because 
you are in for the ride of your life!" LINK HERE

Kirkus Reviews:  "The
protagonist’s acerbic wit and mordant tone work well in the difficult 
material in Preble’s unconventional road novel. A razor-sharp, oddly 
fun  romp through the American West." LINK HERE
