One of the best new books of 2019. Must-read book about real, dirty politics.


you need to throw yourself into your fear

in order to become the person you were born to be.

For most of her life, Gloria Squitiro had to balance her identity as a hard-nosed Italian New Yorker with a propensity for anxiety. Join Gloria as she leads her family on a summer-long journey through Europe in this fresh, humorous and brutally honest memoir -- hailed as one of the best books of 2019.


May Cause Drowsiness and Blurred Vision is a testament to the untested bravery that lives in all of us. And it's only the beginning of a story that starts on a car wash park bench, and ends with the hatching of the grassroots political campaign that saw her husband, Mark Funkhouser, elected as the Mayor of Kansas City.
