This is what I wrote upon reading the book's preview:
"Haralson's "survival guide" promises to be a terrifying story written in a lush, gorgeous voice. Reading the preview has me counting the days until I can share the rest of her journey."

The novel more than follows through its promise to captivate you with a story that holds you steady while in the midst of its storm, written in a voice that allays your fears while describing a nightmare.
Haralson's debut novel leaves you wanting more.

I keep reading Beauty Tips for the Bereaved and thinking, "anyone from Austin will love this book." "Any fan of the Bloggess will love this book." "Anyone who... (has been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder/doubted their parenting abilities/been told they could save the world/been told they just weren't trying hard enough when their fingers were down to the quick/HAS EVER BEEN THROUGH ANYTHING HARD) would love this book." Basically, you will love this book. If you're on the outside of all of the circles of that mess of a Venn diagram that could visualize the above, you're probably not in the set that would be reading this review in the first place.

The soundtrack to this biographical novel should be anything by the Doors. The mixture of alienation poetry together with a delta blues riff is the perfect accompaniment for the prose of her book.

Her novel is a road novel along the lines of Joseph Conrad's `Heart of Darkness' (or the movie `version' Apocalypse Now). Albeit rather than roads or rivers her character journeys across her timeline and into herself while dealing with her own mysterious (and misdiagnosed) blend of mental and health issues. In the role of her Kurtz/Dr. Gonzo travel companion she casts an equally brilliant and ill father. The haunting and humorous journey transforms her and the colorful cast that accompany her, including the reader.

Not surprisingly she shares many themes with David Foster Wallace as she seeks to live a fulfilled life, one "less alone inside" with compassion and mindfulness as her tools. Fortunately her bouts of depression did not end tragically, allowing her to deliver a very cathartic book.

She was taught that both the world would come to an end and that she would heal others. The truth being that it was her world that had to end first and that she would have to heal herself before doing the same to others with her novel. If you have ever faced nearly insurmountable setbacks or even if you just enjoy someone beating the odds, this is the novel for you.

Sunny's book could have been borne from the beat generation as her character seeks to cope with the dark side of life accompanied at times by nothing more than a wicked sense of humor. Her writing, like Hunter S. Thompson's, blends reality and fiction seamlessly while revealing an inordinate amount of courage and heart.

Beauty Tips for the Bereaved is an amazing, gripping read. After one page, I knew I was in for an emotional ride. I couldn't put it down, even placing my Kindle in a Ziplock to take to the shower with me. Steeped in melancholy, it pulls you through the authors phenomenal story, imbibing in an impossible sequence of events to only volcano you out the other end in tears of both laughter and complacency. Sunny is an extrememly talented story teller. A ninja of sorts. She leaves trails of colored rice throughout the pages, guiding her audience back through the forest and into beautiful meadows of rapport. Do not over look this book. I promise you it cures blindness.

This preview of "Beauty Tips for the Bereaved" involved a smaller quantity of hamsters than I had initially expected after reading the description, but the rest of what is promised here is delivered upon tenfold and in a style that makes you feel an immediate connection with the author.

I can't wait to own the complete book. I will read it in one sitting and then when I have recovered from the aftermath of that I will purchase copies for several friends because I will need a support group with which to discuss this. More please.

The voice of this book reminds me of that in Rivethead. Ms Haralson has a compelling tale, and her story brings to mind serious questions about the mind/body connection and how we view/treat mental illness with modern medicine. I hope she has great success, not only with the book but how her life turns out in general.
