"Atmospheric, humming with menace, heartbreaking, beautifully written."

In the Porches of My Ears (2023)
Norman Prentiss
"The monsters at the heart of Norman Prentiss's disquieting, deceptively hushed fiction are overheard conversations, misunderstood gestures, the things both partners in a relationship have agreed never to say. At least until those things sprout teeth, fur, the ability to curse, and turn into even more terrifying monsters."
