The Bored Housewife Chronicles

The Bored Housewife Chronicles

by Lisa M Whitman




Presented in three sections, this book is a compilation of stories straight out of the daydreams of a bored--but never boring--housewife. We join her on her journey as she struggles with feeling trapped in a place she doesn't belong, in a life that looks perfect but often feels empty.
The first section is filled with fantasies drawn from her deep wells of desire. She often speaks directly to the reader, drawing us so close we can almost taste her.
The second section is comprised of select passages from her blog, passages which illuminate her story through shadows and poetry.
The final section holds a few pieces of flash fiction and first chapters of novels she may some day finish.
Throughout its pages, the lines between memoir and fiction are blurred, often weaving back and forth several times within the same story.

"A book of wanting-wanting what I can't have, wanting what I used to have, what I almost had, and what I will never have. In retrospect, I can see it clearly: the desire for Other that coursed through my veins, and swam around me in the air. This is a book filled with my dreams, and my reality. I hope it makes you feel."
--Lisa Whitman
