Winner of the inaugural MIAMI BOOK FAIR/DE GROOT PRIZE for Best Novella
The fiction debut of a distinctive new American voice
Life is coming fast at twenty-something April. All the heavy stuff of adulthood—including the death of a loved one—seems to have happened to her all at once, leaving her reeling, and challenging her wit and grit in ways she never imagined. In a stirring portrait told in keenly etched scenes, Death and Other Holidays follows April over the course of a year, with a candid insight that’s tender, playful, and sparkles with originality.

Read an Excerpt
We drive a lot. We don't go anywhere in particular; we just drive. Or so it seems. To tell the real truth, Victor does the driving. I sit in the passenger seat and watch the white line on the side of the road.
