Jackie's life wasn't perfect, but at least it was normal. That is, until her dad received a terminal cancer diagnosis. Then he went and did what anyone faced with mountains of medical bills and a family to support would do: he sold his life to the highest bidder. Which turned out to be a TV station. Suddenly everyone from psychotic millionaires to cyber-savvy nuns wants a piece of Jackie's family as they become a reality TV sensation. Jackie's life spirals out of control just as her dad's starts to run out, and meanwhile the whole world is tuning in to watch her family fall apart . Acidly funny and heartbreakingly sad, Life in a Fishbowl is an exploration of the value of life and what memories mean to us. Perfect for fans of Patrick Ness.

Notă biografică

Len Vlahos dropped out of NYU film school in the mid Eighties to play guitar and write songs for Woofing Cookies, a punk-pop four piece that toured up and down the East Coast, and had two singles and one full-length LP on Midnight Records. After the band broke up, he followed his other passion, books. He is the author of The Scar Boys, a William C. Morris Award finalist and a #1 Indie Next pick, and Scar Girl, the book's sequel. Len lives in Denver with his wife and two young sons, where he owns the Tattered Cover Book


Surprising, original, political, and deeply affecting. . . It is one of those rare works of art that keeps you guessing up to the very last page.
It will tear you apart, and yet it's an absolute joy.
Vlahos balances a precarious, heartbreaking, and wholly 21st-century premise with a compulsively readable and well-plotted story.
Once again, Vlahos strikes all the right chords. . . You know these people and you want to know what happens to them beyond the story.
Len Vlahos has pulled off a brilliant exploration of intimacy in modern society. . . [H]umorous, while being poignant and haunting at the same time.
A wry, stylish tale.
Distinguished in every way.
Etches its way onto the heart and leaves a mark.
