A Gem On Our Radar: GUTSHOT

What is a gem? A gem is a title that we hadn’t necessarily been tracking but the superlative praise rolling in is telling us to take a second look!

Amelia Gray’s collected stories in GUTSHOT, which is receiving wonderful praise, is just that gem:

“Strange, fable-like, and physical, Gray’s stories are driven by uncanny forces and set in organic yet unnatural worlds. Gray dazzlingly renders the wide array of human experience in these potent, haunting stories.” Publishers Weekly, boxed & starred review

“The best of Gray’s stories find that balance between devastation and humor and navigate an uneasy territory with agility; in this book, there are many that reach that mark.” — Kirkus Reviews

The New Yorker excerpted Amelia Gray’s story “Labyrinth” (read it here) and ran a terrific interview with Gray on their Page Turner blog.

Keep an eye out for more upcoming coverage of GUTSHOT in O Magazine, Marie Claire, the Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, a Barnes & Noble Review, and more.

GUTSHOT will be available from Farrar, Straus & Giroux on April 14, 2015.
