A girl with no plan to fall in love realizes there is no choice in the matter.
Cold Sober is a delicate and organic collection of poems that chart the journey from skepticism to fulfillment. With the genuine tone of somebody discovering love and navigating a relationship for the first time, it is impossible not to feel the surprising wonder as you turn each page. Sopko’s words are a slowly blooming bud, taking readers from apprehension and distance to to trust and intimacy. Cold Sober asks all of the questions, addresses all of the fears, and acknowledges all of the beauty within the perfect storm that is falling in love.
Theresa Sopko has long believed in the transformative, essential power of storytelling. She began writing almost as soon as she was capable of grasping a pencil. A graduate of Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts, her debut novel, “Bewilderment of the Eyes,” has received a warm response from critics, readers and fellow authors. Sopko describes her purpose this way: “I want to share my stories, and connected with others’ stories. I want to explore the worlds inside my head and always have characters to fall in love with.”
