Before this War broke out, I was very excited about my new novel With A Good Eye.
Luna Levi is an ordinary 19 year old with extraordinary problems. Her mother's acting career is more important to her than the stage of real life. Her father struggles with PTSD as an ex-combat soldier and is equally MIA when it comes to his daughter. The Levis jump from financial crisis to financial crisis until in one-split second someone enters their lives and throws them into the biggest disaster of all. When Luna tries to warn her mother, she is pushed aside and it's the first hint that her mother has every intention of going full steam ahead with a partner who lies – about everything.
Can you ever save anyone but yourself?
Do any of us ever really leave home?
Here are three new testimonials:
Gila Green's compelling new novel, With A Good Eye, is a unique Coming of Age story about the impact of parents' mental illness on the lives of teenagers. Set in Canada, the author deftly explores PTSD, narcissistic personality disorder, and antisemitism from the perspective of 19-year-old Luna Levi. Green provides a thought-provoking and poignant window into a dysfunctional family. It raises the question: Can you ever escape your family background? An engrossing read! -- Meryl Ain, Author of Shadows We Carry and The Takeaway Men
"With a Good Eye is a powerful story about family, loss, and hope seern through the eyes of one young, resourceful woman, Luna Levi, who is trying to find her way. Gila Green paints a vivid portrait of a raw, urban Canadian landscape, as she delves into the Underworld as well as the inner world of her characters. Lyrical, wise and moving."--Diana Bletter, author of A Remarkable Kindness.
In prose that is tight, spare, and fast paced, Gila Green brings her main character, nineteen when the story begins, into adulthood. . . . By the end, there is a strong sense that this young woman will take matters into her own hands. Through a careful recounting of emotional development, Green leaves us convinced that life, and love, will win out.
--Thaddeus Rutkowski, author of Safe Colors
