Something is Better Than Nothing by Alicia Delory Depicts the Reality of Life with a Combat Veteran

Los Angeles, CA March 1, 2021 – Alicia Delory’s memoir published by Running Wild Press shares the rarely heard account of a military spouse’s life with a combat veteran.

“…an affecting and bravely confessional work. A moving recollection of love for the wounded and its frustrations” –Kirkus Reviews

“This stunning memoir relates a rarely heard account of a wife surviving her army husband's return from Afghanistan with severe PTSD. Their story of perseverance, anger, violence, and a yearning for understanding, are interspersed with gripping scenes from Delory's diffcult childhood. Told with searing frankness, dark humor, and penetrating insight, here is a riveting true story of how fierce honesty and enduring love can heal immeasurable challenges.” –Eugenia Kim, author of The Kinship of Secrets

“I dare you to open Alicia Delory's 'Something is Better than Nothing' and then try to put it down. This is a page-turning narrative that exposes physical and emotional shrapnel, relayed with unflinching and poetic honesty. Through her woven reflection on loving a veteran and mourning the loss of her father, Delory attains a rare and sharp beauty, laced with humor and hard-won wisdom." –Sonya Huber, author of Pain Woman Takes Your Keys

“Alicia Delory bleeds through the page in this stunning, emotional memoir. She does so effortlessly, without seeking pity or needing to apologize. What she creates is a blunt, honest, and at times heart-wrenching look at millennial marriage.” –Reuben "Tihi" Hayslett, author of Dark Corners, BEST of 2019
