The Hilarious, All-Too-Personal Essays of Stacey Brook: Vol. 1
This 10-page chapbook includes two original essays by Stacey Brook and serves as a perfect introduction to Stacey's voice in the realm of personal essays.
"Anxiety Order," winner of an Honorable Mention in the 2011 Writer's Digest Awards,is the story of how Stacey's mother drives her family to the brink of insanity with outbursts caused by “The Pheo,” a small tumor on her adrenal gland, whose acts of endocrine terrorization intensify the obsessive tendencies of an already neurotic woman.
"The Future Perfect," tells the tale of 24 year-old Stacey, who is diagnosed by a NYC psychic as being, "unlucky in love." Even after a series of wonky predictions, Stacey leaves the salon with her mind open to previously unfathomable possibilities.
