Author Brenn Colleen’s “It Only Seems Random” Breaks Los Angeles’ Rose Colored Glasses
By LeVar Thomas
Congratulations to the brilliant Los Angeles based author, poet, and story teller Brenn Colleen on the release of her first novel. We have had the honor of hosting some of her social commentary regarding social injustice in 2020, and enjoying her artistic eye as the visual director for SAINt JHN’s Sucks To Be You.
During it all, Colleen was crafting her second book, “It Only Seems Random.” Following a book of deeply personal contemporary poetry, “Love Letters & Lighter Fluid”, her new book “It Only Seems Random” is a look into an un-romanticized Los Angeles from an unadulterated point of view.
Congratulations to the brilliant Los Angeles based author, poet, and story teller Brenn Colleen, and the gritty underside of Los Angeles that makes people love, and leave the city in the new satirical novel. “It Only Seems Random” can be read as individual snippets from the life of the author, or read chronologically as a complete story. This is the reality of a person growing up in the City of Angels. Click through to support the effervescent Brenn Colleen and It Only Seems Random, now.
I have never encountered a more truthful description of all that is LA than within these pages.
The truth and vulnerability that is displayed with a hit of sarcasm and dark humor is pure perfection.
This is a memoir written sincerely yet with a comical and sarcastic side that will not only entertain, but provoke thought.
A must read for anyone growing up in LA &/or planning to invade the city.
Simply amazing, I laughed and cried in the same chapter. Simply brilliant
I love this book. Brenn’s voice is candid and distinct- she brings you in as if pulling you aside in the hallway to give the scoop. It’s nostalgic and illuminating, you’re along for the ride and you don’t want it to stop.
