Publisher Description

Jennifer M. Wilson has decided to become a voice. A professional enunciator, an announcer, a voice-over artiste, she has retreated into a world of words. Behind the sound-proof double doors of the recording studio she must surely be safe from the painful inconveniences of hate and love. Until reality breaks in. An alchemical romance, a Swiftian satire for our times, an impossible spiritual journey and a devastating plummmet into insanity and perversion, SO I AM GLAD - oblique, incisive, horrific and hilarious by turn - is the finest book yet from this uniquely gifted writer.
