Eve La Salle Caram's new short novel, published here in Trio for the first time, is a story not only about a search for a lost relative, but about finding the lost pieces of several lives. It is also the story the author's students at Los Angeles City College, who after reading her novel Rena, A Late Journey, have repeatedly urged her to write "Looking For Johnny", the story that brings her Corpus Christi novels full circle.
About: Looking For Johnny
"Two of my favorites just became three! Eve Caram has fulfilled the promise offered by Dear Corpus Christi in her usual inimitable style."
Multi award-winning author and poet
"Looking for long lost Johnny was the last thing Elizabeth wanted to do, and we, as readers, are compelled to search with her. Eve La Salle Caram draws us into her web of mystery in a world of secrets that Looking For Johnny weaves. A relentless page turner, impossible to put down, riveting!"
