About the Book:

The JacketsThe Jackets is a collection of short stories in which Liz DeJesus explores the connection between colors and emotions. Love unrequited, love fulfilled, and unrelenting reality crushing hopes and dreams are some of the experiencessymbolized in the jacket colors that structure the rhapsodic explorations of the stages of love as experienced by young women.

Red is the color of love at first sight for Laura. Orange represents the flames of passion for Mia. For Penelope, brown is the color of nature—of the ancient gods and their unfettered love-making. Each chapter explores a unique perspective: a writer trying to find her muse; a young woman trying to flee an abusive relationship; a cashier getting lost in the woods and finding more than she had ever bargained for.

In this intriguing blend of fiction and fantasy, the women in these stories hope for relationships, break out of them or find themselves involved with mythical gods and creatures. These fantastical pieces make for entertaining reading and give insight into young women’s eternal search for romance.

DeJesus’s style is direct and uncompromising. Her women are courageous and captivating. This book will be a page-turner for women at every stage of life.
