Additional Information

The next "screamingly hilarious"(Miami Herald) installment in the wild ride that is the life of Hollis Gillespie.

Confessions of a Recovering Slut is the hilarious and often heartrending sequel to Bleachy–Haired Honky Bitch, which concludes with Hollis Gillespie, the daughter of a missile scientist and an alcoholic traveling trailer salesman, at last finding a home of her own. Unfortunately that home just happens to be in one of Atlanta's most dangerous crack neighborhoods–but the place is bound to improve, right?

Wrong. In Confessions, Gillespie is plagued by missing human torsos, murdered policeman, and a drug dealer who keeps setting fire to her neighbor's house–and all this after Hollis discovers that she is inexplicably (except, maybe, for all that acrobatic sex) pregnant. While the neighborhood might have been fine when she was a child–free urban pioneer, it's a nightmare for a mother with nothing but cake pans to bulletproof the baby's room. Gillespie must depend on her three best friends, Daniel, Grant, and Lary, to help her–although Lary makes it no secret that he hopes the paint fumes she inhaled early in her pregnancy will cause the baby to be born inside out–"that way it'll be easier to sell for parts."

Will Gillespie ever feel safe? No matter, she's still Hollis at heart–and, as Lary points out, if not safe, at least "safe from ever being normal."

I loved this book so much after I borrowed it from the library, that when I couldn't find her first book at any of my state interlibrary lenders, I bought it (from Amazon!). I love Hollis' writing style; she is hilarious and original but all of her tales end with a poignant thought. I'd never heard of her before I read a review of her books on Amazon and I'm so glad I found her. I love that each chapter in her books is a short, mostly true story and I wish I had wacky friends like hers. I hope she keeps writing more novels because I will be reading every last one of them, possibly more than once, and I don't usually re-read books. (Another author I just discovered who is just like Hollis, is Laurie Notaro...I'll be reviewing her books next!)
You know a great book when you turn the last page and close the cover, and you're actually sad--bereft, even--that it's over. It's like one of those short-term, highly intense relationships in high school or college, where you discover a soul mate, spend all your time together, quickly learn all there is to know--and you still want more. I'm already missing my new BFF (even is she has no idea)(and this might make me a stalker?), after spending time almost every day for the last two weeks with Hollis Gillespie in her wild, wacky, wonderful world with Bleachy-Haired Honky Bitch and the sequel, Confessions of a Recovering Slut.

In Bleachy-Haired, Hollis finally found her place in the world after an itinerant childhood, created a new family out of a very eccentric cast of characters, and bought her first house--in a dangerous crack neighborhood in South Atlanta. And then she got pregnant, which is the basis of Confessions: pregnancy, single parenting, facing fears and the... Read more
Hollis Gillespie's second book might just be even better than her first one, if that's even possible. Her sassy way of words leaves me wanting MORE..Her characters Lary, Daniel & Grant are all certifiably crazy but with the best intentions. Hollywood needs to turn this book into a sitcom for HBO or Showtime. I love Hollis Gillespie, I love her style of writing and I have a feeling there will be more books to follow and if we are all lucky maybe we'll see Hollis's book turned into a Golden Globe award winning show for tv . Keep writing Miss. Gillespie.
