Overview

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.
