Why should you attend?
“Riveting . . . [The Legend of Jesse Smoke] is an entertaining sports narrative bolstered by weightier issues for readers to contemplate.”―Publishers Weekly
“I’ve been waiting and waiting for a new book from Marcy Dermansky and finally that new book is here. The Red Car is taut and smart and strange and sweet and perfect. I want to eat this book or sew it to my skin or something.” ―Roxane Gay, author of The Untamed State and Bad Feminist
“A novel this good is a rare thing. Elegiac and timeless, The Barrowfields is an unforgettable evocation of a dark American saga. Reading it is like cracking open the tattered first edition of a classic you somehow missed but just pulled from your father’s bookshelf.”—David Gilbert, national bestselling author of & Sons
