Fiction. In her first novel, journalist and award-winning playwright Lee Cataluna follows the adventures of a small town miscreant through his alternately hilarious and tragic life. THREE YEARS ON DOREEN'S SOFA is the story of Bobby, a bumbling, affable ne'er-do-well, and his wildly misguided attempts to go straight after serving three years in jail for a stupid drug-related offense. His sister Doreen lets him stay on her sofa until he gets his life back together. Heartwarming and heartrending at the same time, this book, says the Honolulu Weekly "may open up a whole new era for Hawai‘i literature."
