Cloud Cuckoo Land

Cloud Cuckoo Land

Lisa’s first novel, Cloud Cuckoo Land, won River City Publishing’s Fred Bonnie Award for Best First Novel and was published in 2002.

Cloud Cuckoo Land went on to win Fiction Honors in the 2003 Massachusetts Book Awards, and was a finalist for both the Independent Publisher (IPPY) Awards and the Foreword Fiction Book of the Year.



Moving from the blues and country music scene of East Texas in the late 1970s to the underground rock scene of the Northeast in the 1980s, Cloud Cuckoo Land tells the story of a young female street musician’s search for home—and the unlikely place where she finds one.

Available at Amazon and other fine booksellers (the author hopes that you will support independent booksellers whenever you can)
