Description
							When Beatrice "Trixie" Jordan replies to a personal ad-"If your intentions are pure I am seeking a friend for the end of the world"-she meets Jacob Grace, a charming, effervescent thirty-something free-spirit writer passionately seeking life. He possesses his own turns of phrase and ways of thinking and feeling that dissonantly harmonize with Trixie's off-center vision. As they rollercoaster through the joys and furies of their wrenching romance, they try to come to terms with the hurt brought about by both of their distant fathers who, in different ways, forsook them. Written with snap, glitter, and wit, God-Shaped Hole is a memorable, poignant love story that will leave you weeping with laughter and rushing to share it someone.
Reviews

"This generation's Love Story." - Kirkus Reviews

"From highs to heartbreak, DeBartolo conjures an affair to remember." - People Magazine

"Beatrice comes across as bright but brittle, independent but superstitious, sophisticated but trailer-park profane. Jacob is Byronic, misunderstood and (of course) destined for tragedy. For readers compelled by bedroom athletics and the self-destructive tendencies of free spirits...this first novel offers some appeal." - Publishers Weekly

"An edgy story of love and fate...This is a love story in which a happy ending isn't guaranteed. Some readers may be unfamiliar with some of the pop-culture references and may not appreciate the frank and brutally honest tone, but overall this is an engaging first novel." - Library Journal

"Funny, fresh and sharply contemporary." - Eileen Goudge, author of NYT bestseller, Garden of Lies

"If Holden Caulfield were a twenty-seven-year-old woman living in L.A., this is the book he'd write, or read." - Dave Eggers
