Glory Goes and Gets Some

by Emily Carter

Glory is HIV positive, a recovering alcoholic and heroin addict, but she is also bright, witty and observant. These linked stories tell of her many extraordinary friends and of her own exploits in New York and Minneapolis.


Here was Glory, beloved baby girl of professional parents, going into neighborhoods her great-grandfather had worked all his life to get out of, sniffing around for heroin, the opiate of the people. Marie Antoinette in her little peasant dress, Glory in her leather jacket. I knew all this, and yet I couldn't stop.
