SCRIBE
by Alyson Hagy
November 2018 #1 Indie Next Pick  + two starred reviews for this gothic, apocalyptic, dystopian novel filled with myth and folklore from the hills of Appalachia!

“Set after a civil war and deadly fevers decimate the country, Hagy’s new novel is a slim and affecting powerhouse. Timely and timeless; a deft novel about the consequences and resilience of storytelling.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Taut and tense, with both a dreamlike quality and a strong sense of place, Hagy’s brief but powerful tale will indelibly haunt readers long after the final page is turned.” Booklist, starred review

“Hagy probes the weight of responsibility and the desperation of survival in a deteriorated society in this evocative, opaque tale.”— Publishers Weekly

Praise for SHE WOULD BE KING:

“Moore’s stunning debut novel is a magic-realism tour de force taking readers on a journey through the beginnings of Liberia. There is an aching sweetness to Moore’s writing that effectively captures the dichotomous and vulnerable strength of her protagonists and catapults this into the realm of books that cast a long-lingering spell.” — Booklist, starred review

“As with Yaa Gyasi’s HOMEGOING, this work will appeal to lovers of African, African American, and literary fiction.” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove
