Fear & Yoga in New Jersey

From a '74 Mustang to a Chevy Suburban, author Debra Galant's Cars from a Marriage charts the important events-big and small-in one couple's relationship by way of the automobiles that drive them throughout the course of their lives. The cars steer us from their first meeting, to their first fight, and down the line to a family funeral. Finally, it's on a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway that Ivy and Ellis come to some serious and illuminating realizations about their lives. With insights that alternate between hilarious and profound, Galant provides a unique, unforgettable portrait of a marriage.

Available April 27 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and at an indie near you.
