Madame Josephine’s Favorite People is an in-progress 16 chapter novella whose four central characters; Jesse, Sam Sam, Blair, and Alex are referred to with gender neutral pronouns. While other characters are referred to with he and she, it is up to the reader to decide if the four central characters are male, female, or otherwise.
The chapters alternate perspectives between the four characters who are all tied together through common friends, and through a monthly salon held by the enchanting Madame Josephine. The stories explore the relationships we have with substances, with art, with our families and friends, and with ourselves.
