(maybe even BOOK OF THE YEAR!)

Hey everyone, I'm delighted to let you know that my friend Rayya Elias's beautiful, harrowing, heartbreaking, crazy, uplifting, fearless memoir "Harley Loco" has been published today!

It's so great.

Don't just take it from me, either, even though she's my friend and I wrote the introduction. You know who else loves this book? (Besides everyone who's read it?) DEBBIE HARRY, people!

It's not often you see a book with blurbs from both Debbie Harry and Liz Gilbert, but this is that very book.

Also, the memoir has gotten nothing but raves from the critics so far. Publisher's Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus…they all love it. It's strong and potent writing, and they know it.

Congratulations, Rayya! We love you!
