Publisher's Summary

A continuation of the serendipitous saga commenced in Raving Violet, Valerie Gilbert’s first non-fiction collection of short stories, Memories, Dreams & Deflections: My Odyssey Through Emotional Indigestion, picks up the sojourn of this sassy, single mystic, mired in her mind and cloistered above the streets of New York City.
This volume explores Valerie’s intrepid and irreverent search for healing inside and out (both medical and mystical), the quest for peace (and quiet) and, as always, true love.

Laughter is always best

A memoir, a journaling, an exploration into beliefs and life changes, this book is all of that and more. Related in a snarky, humorous way, Valerie lets us see into her life and how she has managed to come out on top. It is not a bragging recounting of career achievements, but an explorative of reactions, and learning experiences, and the evolution of a personal perspective on certain life events. The best part, for me, is listening to the author, herself, recounting and snarking. She is an excellent writer, and she brings even more depth in her reading.
