A broken love letter to an ex-boyfriend, The Lights navigates the self-destruction and hopeful redemption of a writer who relocates to Austin, TX, for an MFA program. While there, she immerses herself into a new obsession: Jason, a younger MFA student with dreams of Hollywood screenwriting and the intended audience to the narrator's twelve steps of AA. Grappling with mental illness, alcoholism, and her own difficult behavior, her battle boils down to the question can a person love another while hating herself? The Lights is an endeavor in the psyche of a writer and a damaged woman. Against a backdrop of changing cities from New York to Austin to Los Angeles, the narrator must learn the only person she cannot outrun is herself.
