Lithium for Medea is as much a tale of addiction—to sex, drugs, and dysfunctional family chains—as it is one of mothers and daughters, their mutual rebellion and unconscious mimicry. Here is the story according to Rose—the daughter of a narcissistic, emotionally crippled mother and a father who shadowboxes with death in hospital corridors—as she slips deeply and dangerously into the lair of a cocaine-fed artist in the bohemian squalor of Venice. Lithium for Medea sears us with Rose’s breathless, fierce, visceral flight—like a drug that leaves one’s perceptions forever altered.

Josie Tyrell, art model, teen runaway, and denizen of LA's 1980 punk rock scene, finds a chance at real love with art student Michael Faraday. A Harvard dropout and son of a renowned pianist, Michael introduces her to a world of sophistication, and to his spiritual quest for the beauty that shines through everyday experience. But when she receives a call from the Los Angeles County Coroner asking her to identify her lover's dead body, her bright dreams fade to black. 'What happens to a dream when the dreamer is gone?'. Josie finds herself drawn into a twisted relationship with Michael's pianist mother, Meredith, that reflects equal parts distrust and blind need. Passionate, wounded, fiercely alive, Josie Tyrell walks the brink of her own destruction as she fights to discover what is left of the brilliant vision of the future she and Michael once nurtured together. With the luxurious prose and fever pitch intensity that are her hallmarks, Janet Fitch has written a spellbinding new novel about love and betrayal.
