    "Sometimes, the most tender place in your heart is for strangers" In Lipstick and Thongs, Courtney takes you through what must seem an unexplainable and at times unbearable darkness with light-hearted wit and humor. Mental illness, suicide attempts, the wackiness that is life, these become entertainment as presented by Ms. Walsh. Having lived through a lifetime of my own type of darkness, I can definitely relate to what is presented within. Hell, I am crazy enough to own a drawer full of thongs at my age. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

    "An Exceptionally Worthwhile Read" Courtney has what it takes to transcend demographic demarcations by her engaging writing style and sharp commentary. In her book, humor and depth intertwine remarkably to take the reader on an unforgettable journey, which promises many laughs along the way and lessons learned by the end. Courtney adeptly brings to light what has become to some a gnawing reality and to others an unfathomable darkness. Ultimately out of desperation and despair come hope, redemption, and fulfillment.
