The Painting and the Piano

Adult; Memoir; (Publish)

The Painting and The Piano, by John Lipscomb and Adrianne Lugo, is an improbable story of survival and love.

Growing up more than a thousand miles apart and worlds away from each other, Johnny and Adrianne seemed to have all that a child could ask for. However, the demons of their respective mothers would tear their young, fragile lives apart.

Eventually, destiny would bring Johnny and Adrianne together, but first they had to endure the painful toll that alcohol, drugs, and a negligent court system would take on them. With parts of Adrianne’s story ripped from national news headlines, their story takes them from the depths of despair and near death, to their first serendipitous introduction and the moment each knew they were finally safe.

Filled with hope, inspiration and humor, The Painting and the Piano is an unforgettable story of pain, loss and the undying human quest for happiness. Told as a tandem narrative, Adrianne and Johnny’s stories are unique, but share parallels that create a taut and emotionally compelling narrative.

The Painting and The Piano is set to be released in February 2016. Genres: Literary Nonfiction / Romance / Memoir / Addiction and Recovery

Reviews
Kirkus Reviews

“A vivid, moving account of addiction, trauma, and hard-won triumph by two survivors.”

Red City Reviews

“Although it is a non-fiction memoir, the book reads much like a novel: intense and at points, almost unbelievable.” 

Tracy Slowiak

“Any reader who enjoys a great work of non-fiction, an autobiography, or a story of redemption and triumph in the face of great odds and a difficult history, should absolutely read The Painting and the Piano.”

Wally Klein

“I really couldn’t put it down. Johnny and Adrianne’s stories are a story of loss, fear, suffering and true growth that is told in a beautiful format.”
