Kings Books celebrates the release of This Is Me, Debbi, David, the new novel from Alec Clayton.
Debbi Mason is a self-declared loudmouth, fun loving, rabble rousing, perverse woman. David Parker says he has always been something of a nebbish little mama’s boy who never took a chance on anything in his entire life. When Debbi breaks up with David and runs off with a man she thinks can provide wealth and security, Debbi and David each embark on adventures that are, in turn, romantic, funny, enlightening and scary-adventures that take them from the French Quarter in New Orleans, to Dallas, and to New York City’s East Village. And into their own hearts. Novel with nine bonus short stories.
