THEY ONLY EAT THEIR HUSBANDS
A Memoir of Alaskan Love, World Travel,
and the Power of Running Away
"A delightfully engaging read. Lee reminds us that in travel as in life, the inward journey is as messy, important and rewarding as the outward one."
Kyle Wagner, travel editor, The Denver Post
At 26, after a lover threatens to shoot her, Cara runs away to Alaska. During her nine years in the Last Frontier, she lands in a love triangle with two alcoholics: a paraglider pilot obsessed with danger and a martial artist obsessed with death. At 35, sick of addicts, Cara runs again, to backpack around the world alone.
Cara Lopez Lee, author of They Only Eat Their Husbands, discusses writing, relationships, and personal growth with Denver arts-and-entertainment aficionado Megan Golliday:
It Matters, a radio show dedicated to meaningful entertainment, features Cara Lopez Lee in an interview about her memoir, They Only Eat Their Husbands, and her essay, Drummer and Dumber, which appears in the anthology 25 Years in the Rearview Mirror:
"With an open heart, Cara Lopez Lee relates her round-the-world journey to self-discovery with the unabashed, dazzling honesty of a good friend telling you her innermost secrets over a cup of coffee. The backdrop of intriguing cultures and landscapes further enriches Lee's bold memoir, They Only Eat Their Husbands."
