If Fleabag Was a Book


If Fleabag was a book instead of a TV show, it might be one of these.  Like the award-winning comedy series (season two is up for three Golden Globes), the books below feature dark humor, fraught relationships, and cheeky characters dealing with issues such as friendship, guilt, love, family, identity, grief, intimacy, loss, and the desire to do and be better.  There may even be a hot priest.
