About the Book

A fresh, fun, totally addictive debut—by turns hilarious and tragic—by a gifted new writer, Losing Clementine follows a famous artist as she attempts to get her messy affairs in order en route to her eventual planned suicide a month later. First time author Ashley Ream takes a usually macabre subject and makes it accessible, relatable, and funny, and, in Clementine, has created one of the most endearing and unforgettable characters in recent fiction.

Critical Praise

“[LOSING CLEMENTINE] is poignant and insightful and also surprisingly funny, thanks to its nasty, charming narrator.” —Gillian Flynn, New York Times-bestselling author of Gone Girl

“A breezy, self-deprecating voice that makes for good company...clever dialogue...It’s tempting to consider [LOSING CLEMENTINE] a Left Coast update of “Bright Lights, Big City” ...although Ream’s Clementine stares down a fate far more dire than that faced by Jay McInerney’s magazine fact-checker.” —Kansas City Star

“This is a novel that allows us to experience how exciting life is, and how fast time can fly, once you truly free yourself to live it.” —Bust Magazine

“An entertaining and moody whirlwind. Whether readers love or hate Clementine, they won’t soon forget her.” —Publishers Weekly

“An unexpectedly fresh and humorous voice. Fans of dark comedy should add Ream to their list of authors to watch.” —Library Journal

“With her razor wit and over-it-all candor, Clementine makes for a fascinating companion, and Ream manages to craft an engaging and impressive debut without soft-pedaling how very sick Clementine is . . . A hip and hilarious portrait of a crazy person.” —Kirkus

“It’s hard not to fall in love with Clementine Pritchard--she’s talented, witty, inventive and suicidal. You won’t want this story to end as you root for the wonderfully lawless and impulsive Clementine.” —Jessica Anya Blau, author of Drinking Closer to Home
