Very grateful for this generous review of The Playwright’s House in NewPages, which calls the book “illuminating,” “expansive yet intimate,” and “an impressive debut.” You can click on the photo below for the full review!
Can’t wait for the launch of THE PLAYWRIGHT’S HOUSE as part of the Grubbie Debut Series in three weeks’ time! Please register and come virtually hang out with me and Jonathan Escoffery, whose books will inevitably take over the literary world in the near future. Please share with anyone who might be interested in hearing about the novel and contemporary Cuba and maybe even some writing craft!
THE PLAYWRIGHT’S HOUSE is one of Silver Unicorn Books’ top ten books for June! Honored to be alongside writers such as Clint Smith and Lisa Taddeo, as well as Carol Anderson’s important work. Please check out this fantastic bookstore and be on the lookout for an event I’ll be doing there soon!
I was delighted to learn last week that Kathryn Schulz has selected my essay, “In Orbit,” originally published in The Threepenny Review, for inclusion in this year’s BEST AMERICAN ESSAYS anthology! Publication is scheduled for fall. I’m immensely grateful to Wendy Lesser for giving the essay a home in one of my dream journals and to everyone who read early versions before it went out into the world.
I’m so excited to have gotten this positive Publishers Weekly review for THE PLAYWRIGHT’S HOUSE!
“Fans of realistic political thrillers won’t want to miss this one,” it concludes. As someone who really cares about plot, I take it as badge of honor that they tagged the novel as a thriller.
I feel so incredibly fortunate and grateful for all the people who’ve helped me with this book along the way!
ARCs of my Novel are Here!
