Meet Roxy, one of the most endearing, hysterical and memorable characters to come along to steal your heart and make you smile.

The Roxy Letters is a romantic comedy entirely comprised of letters by our winsome 28-year old heroine who is writing to her ex-boyfriend (and roommate) Everett. The letters unfold with a captivating stream of consciousness and showcase Roxy's charming idiosyncrasies and observations. The narrative chronicles a few pivotal months in Roxy's life, which evolve with delightful randomness and unpredictability.

Whether it's protesting a corporate giant destroying her beloved Austin neighborhood, meeting a one of a kind new best friend, getting revenge on the meth heads that live next door, dabbling in something called, "Orgasmic Meditation," or her various romantic entanglements, Roxy's life is never boring. Along the way, complementing the hijinks and laugh out loud quips, is smart and subversive commentary about gentrification, capitalism and how hard it is to find your way.

This book is a quirky, one-of-a-kind, madcap and completely escapist real so sit back and enjoy Roxy's world you'll find yourself smiling on every page.
