The Original 1982 is the wise and memorable debut novel of love, regret, music, and motherhood, by singer and songwriter Lori Carson of the Golden Palominos.

It's 1982, and Lisa is a 24-year-old waitress in New York City, an aspiring singer/songwriter, and girlfriend to a famous musician. That year, she makes a decision, almost without thinking about it.

But what if what if her decision had been different?

In a new 1982, Lisa chooses differently. Her career takes another direction. She becomes a mother. She loves differently--yet some things remain the same.

Alternating between two very different possibilities, The Original 1982 is a novel about how the choices we make affect the people we become--and about how the people we are affect the choices we make.

This was very good considering I picked it on a whim from the New Fiction shelf. Very well written - what could have been a confusing narrative was instead dreamily interwoven and masterful. I am not a person that likes children, but even the character of young Minnow was truly engaging.
