Confessions of a Recovering Slut is the hilarious and often heartrending sequel to Bleachy-Haired Honky Bitch, which concludes with Hollis Gillespie, the daughter of a missile scientist and an alcoholic traveling trailer salesman, at last finding a home of her own. Unfortunately that home just happens to be in one of Atlanta's most dangerous crack neighborhoods--but the place is bound to improve, right?

Wrong. Gillespie is plagued by missing human torsos, murdered policemen, and a drug dealer who keeps setting fire to her neighbor's house--and all this after Hollis discovers that she is inexplicably (except, maybe, for all that acrobatic sex) pregnant. While the neighborhood might have been fine when she was a child-free urban pioneer, it's a nightmare for a mother with nothing but cake pans to bulletproof the baby's room. Gillespie must depend on her three best friends, Daniel, Grant, and Lary, to help her--although Lary makes it no secret that he hopes the paint fumes she inhaled early in her pregnancy will cause the baby to be born inside out--"that way it'll be easier to sell for parts."

"Will Gillespie ever feel safe? No matter, she's still Hollis at heart--and, as Lary points out, if not safe, at least "safe from ever being normal."

Personalized inscription on title page reads: 'To Tanara: Thanks for a job well-done! Love, Hollis'; dust jacket shows very light signs of wear on back bottom corner and front top corner; very light crease on front top of dust jacket that extends lightly onto spine; board cover shows bumping along spine bottom
