How is a woman in her thirties, HIV-positive and fresh out of rehab, supposed to find love and work in contemporary, urban America? Emily Carter’s critically acclaimed debut traces Glory’s journey from her addictions to heroin and alcohol in New York to her rebirth in Minnesota’s recovery community. Glory Goes and Gets Some is a streetwise and sardonic look at sex, HIV, addiction, and recovery.

Praise for Glory Goes and Gets Some

“Breathtaking...Emily Carter’s account of alienation and tentative recovery is a marvel of humor and self-awareness.”—Bart Schneider, Newsday

“Original and offbeat...this gentle novel is studded with examples of Glory’s lush vision.” —John Perry, San Francisco Chronicle

“[Glory] relates even her lowest moments with lucidity and comic panache....Carter’s voice is welcome, and one can only hope that she will speak up again sometime soon.” —Jodi Kantor, The New York Times Book Review

“Like The Red Badge of Courage, Glory Goes and Gets Some is wonderfully terrifying in its depiction of aloneness. And like Crane, Emily Carter is a young writer of staggering intelligence and compassion.” —Don Hymans, Boston Review
