What is an aspiring writer to do when she has a boringly "normal" life?

Add a little pizzazz!

And so author Judy Kucharuk does in her wonderfully witty new essay compilation, Naked Tuesday.

While the title story is the only one that is purely fictional, all the tales that Kucharuk includes are "polished" a bit to add the right amount of artistic flair.

Shining through the glittery overlay, however, lie real experiences, emotions, and personal battles that illuminate the human experience as only truly talented writers can.

As she details her lifelong struggle against depression, her ever-shifting relationships with those she loves the most, and being forced to grow up quicker than a child should have to, Kucharuk—as an "ordinary" wife and mother of two—reveals the truths behind our everyday triumphs and tragedies...and provides a few laughs to get us through.

When her life is completely upended, Kucharuk shows that a simple girl from a small town can follow her dreams and find the happiness she deserves. It is an inspiring (and often hilarious) look at the funny way the world works.
