I’ve been slaving away trying to write a good blurb for my soon to be released by Ginninderra Press new book, ‘Lost in Cooper Park’.
Writing a blurb is hard hard work. There are no shortcuts or easy answers. Anyway, after a chat with a close writing friend, this is what I’ve put together for the back cover.
The story begins when, after a fierce storm, Gypsy, a golden Labrador, goes missing in Sydney’s Cooper Park.
A bittersweet comedic account of mistakes, misconceptions and reconciliations in the lives of a disparate group of urban men and women.
There’s Crystal, who wants stability with her eight-year-old daughter and new partner.
Crystal’s ex, searching for the meaning of existence.
Doctor Sarah wanting a new beginning in France.
Rosemary and Philip who want their daughter to walk again.
Crystal’s high school sweetheart who wants another chance.
And the Homeless Girl hiding in Cooper parklands.
And then there’s the cruelty, unpredictability and beauty of life.Back cover blurb: ‘Lost in Cooper Park’ by Libby Sommer
