Bestselling Michigan author Mardi Jo Link launches her latest work, Bootstrapper, at Brilliant Books.
Known for her work in journalism and true crime, Bootstrapper is something new for Link. This memoir is a tough look at some of the hardships involved with life in Northern Michigan, filled with Link’s good-natured humor and wit.
Bootstrapper is featured in the June IndieNext list, a selection of the best new reads as determined by indie booksellers nationwide. These titles are selected by people who live and breathe books and each title selected must be nominated by a large majority.
Reviews for for Bootstrapper have been universally positive:"A heroic-comic saga of single motherhood, pure stubbornness, and the loyalty of three young sons. And more than that, an honest account of the working poor, the people who buy day-old bread, patronize libraries and don't need your sympathy. Just a break now and then."-Garrison Keillor
