About the Book
In the memoir-like chapbook, Blossom’s Wine Bar, Frida R. snatches her audience’s hearts and drags them down the unpaved roads of her messy, ever-changing alcohol-soaked world. With fair amounts of wit and grit, Blossom’s Wine Bar is a collection of stoems (poems that read like short stories) and personal essays where she pulls readers deeper into her world by revealing the events that pushed her to create such raw art. Genuine, vulnerable, and sometimes crass, Frida R. opens up about abortion, relationships, depression, and suicide. With so many things that have gone wrong, she shares the life lessons and moments of self-awareness that allow her to continuously progress because as she says, “If you aren’t going to continue to grow and change, you’re just a waste of food and resources.” Blossom’s Wine Bar reads like conversations between friends because Frida R. is an author who thrives from the idea of connecting with her audience. She wishes to be a voice to the voiceless and a source of motivation for the underdog, making her the stoet (storyteller & poet) to look out for.
