Blintzes and Blunts and Blowies, Oh My! by Gabriela Nicole Kalter

Featuring a droll cocktail of millennial angst and dark humor, Blintzes and Blunts and Blowies, Oh My! gives the reader a candid look into the life of Lea Silber, a directionless twenty-something with an overactive mind. As she navigates the confusion about what to do with her life, she is preoccupied with finding her “bashert” (Jewish soulmate) – some destined mystery man who has seemingly taken a detour on his way into her life. To make things worse, the search is only intensified under the scrutiny of her meddlesome mother, Judy. Blintzes and Blunts and Blowies, Oh My! is an irreverent comedy with a little something for everyone. It’s Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Prozac Nation; it’s Fiddler on the Roof meets My Horizontal Life.It’s a story for anyone who’s been searching for love in all the wrong places, and sometimes even the right ones, but can’t seem to find it.

It’s for anyone who’s tired of attaching their worth to their relationship status, and for the ones who don’t even realize they’re doing it. It’s even for every parent who unwittingly contributes to the chaos with their illusory expectations. This is a novel for anyone seeking relatable content that somewhat normalizes the strange thoughts that pass through, and sometimes cling to, our complex minds. It’s a story for anyone struggling with negative self-talk, and anyone who tends to treat themselves like shit in the privacy of their own head. Mostly, it’s a story about self-love, and the journey of finding the only “one” that can truly make you whole – yourself.
