ABOUT THE BOOK
Through sparse, elegant prose, Amy Koppelman's brutally honest portrayal of family and self shows the reader that real problems are indiscriminate of money or birthright. A Mouthful of Air brings to light the complexity and fragility of the human psyche.
A Mouthful of Air begins a few weeks after Julie Davis's suicide attempt and on the eve of her son's first birthday. Desperate to lead a "normal" life, Julie tries to be thankful for the good things- her comfortable lifestyle, her doting husband and her healthy baby.
But her emotional demons are unrelenting, and the battle is being quietly lost.
