Lori Carson's poignant debut novel, The Original 1982, goes on sale next week! Carson delves into the world of what-ifs as a not-so-young woman revisits the emotional and controversial choices she made as a twenty-something. She gives readers a sneak peek in the voice of the novel's heroine below!
It's 1982, and Lisa is twenty-four years old, a waitress, an aspiring singer-songwriter, and the girlfriend to a famous musician. That year, she makes a decision, almost without thinking about it.
But what would have happened if she had chosen differently? Thirty years later, haunted by regret, Lisa revisits her past to reimagine it.
Alternating between two very different possibilities, The Original 1982 is a novel about how the choices we make affect the people we become—and about how the people we are affect the choices we make.
