What folks are saying:
"It is said that at the heart of every cliché lies a grain of truth. Each line of this book flickers between cliché and truth, at turns inspiring and insipid, a device that propels a searing political critique. William Walsh demonstrates that, when done well, the selection and arrangement of previously existing texts can result in fabulously original literature." — Kenneth Goldsmith, author of Capital: New York, Capital of the 20th Century
"It's time to admit what everyone knows: there's no bolder, no wittier critic of our modern, polarizing American culture than Dave Housley, who points out the absurdities in our relationships while reminding us why we must hold on to each other." - Susan Muaddi Darraj, author of A Curious Land on Dave Housley's Massive Cleansing Fire
"Nancy McCabe's Following Disasters is a novel that offers thrilling wisdom--about family, friendship, and romance. This is a true and important book, sometimes haunting, that is worth any reader's time." - Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Abundance, a Novel of Marie-Antoinette and Ahab's Wife on Following Disasters by Nancy McCabe.
"Harriet Scott Chessman has once again invented an utterly beguiling story inspired by art. This time, in her novel inspired by a Degas sketchbook that may have once existed, she has given us a richly evocative and emotionally true portrait of Edgar Degas during his 1872 visit among his Creole cousins in New Orleans. With the clarity and simplicity of a piano sonata, The Lost Sketchbook of Edgar Degas
is a novel about perception, enduring love, and the complex family legacy of a great artist." - Katharine Weber
