Our first non-fiction Bossy Book is "Irritable Hearts: a PTSD Love Story" by journalist Mac McClelland. This is raw, no-holds-barred account of McClellands battle with PTSD; a debilitating condition that takes her completely by surprise. It is a healing journey, a love story, and an exercise in empathy for readers who are given a rare insight into the havoc that PTSD can wreak in a person's body and mind.

This month, we discuss "The Hundred-Year Flood" the debut novel of Korean-American author Matthew Salesses. It is a story that moves between past and present, myth and reality, to explore how the things we leave buried and unsaid can reveal themselves in art, in ghosts, in love, and in floodwaters.
