From the TBR Pile: Daddy Left me Alone with God by Robin Slick

Annie loathes middle age because in her mind, as long as she avoids mirrors in brightly lit rooms, she is still a cool, cutting edge hipster with a scandalous secret she has kept for almost three decades. At age seventeen, Annie had a love affair with a man ten years her senior -- legendary British rock guitarist Mick Saunders. Now, feeling stuck in a boring, faltering marriage and desperate to change her life, she is unexpectedly given the chance to reconnect with Mick while chaperoning her fledgling rock star teenagers on a tour across America. To Annie, this opportunity to recapture her past is a dream come true. But will she and Mick be able to pick up where they left off? From

Praise for Daddy Left Me Alone With God:

"he plot is great, the characters interact so well" ~ Cheryl's Book Nook

"a funny, sexy and scathingly honest look at what it means to be a baby boomer in a world changing faster than a phone number on speed dial. with a fresh voice, a fast plot and a unique perspective on the new generation of sex, drugs, and rock and roll...a delight from start to finish." ~ Ellen Meister, back cover 

"The road trip from hell made the story so funny, sad, and poignant, depicting the end of an era and the beginning of the next." ~ Coffee Time Romance & More

About the Author:
Robin Slick is a raging liberal living in downtown Philadelphia who wishes she could jump in a time machine and travel to London in the late sixties where she'd party with the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and all of their pals. Robin is the author of several published short stories and novels, a nominee for a Best American Short Story award, former fiction editor at both NFG Magazine and Philadelphia Stories, but alas is probably most well known as the mother of Eric Slick, drummer for Dr. Dog and Paper Cat, and Julie Slick, solo artist, bassist for the Adrian Belew Power Trio, and Paper Cat.

Robin's interests include rock music, world travel, and eating gourmet vegetarian meals prepared by five star restaurants and her daughter, Julie.

She generally prefers dogs over people but does not like cats though she should have one, given her irrational fear of mice.  From
