Already acclaimed for her short fiction--a McSweeney's Amanda Davis Highwire Fiction Award winner whose work was selected by Salman Rushdie for inclusion in 2008 Best American Short Stories' 100 Distinguished Stories--Hannah Pittard proves herself a master of long form fiction as well with her haunting, masterfully crafted debut novel, The Fates Will Find Their Way. A powerful and beautiful literary masterwork reminiscent of The Virgin Suicides, Pittard's The Fates Will Find Their Way tells the unforgettable story of a teenaged girl gone missing, and the boys she grew up with who find themselves caught in the mysterious wake of her absence for the rest of their lives.
Hannah Pittard recommends
Dry Bones in the Valley (2014)
(Henry Farrell, book 1)
"It's a mystery, yes, but it's also a love story between a man and the land and people he knows like the back of his hand. Dry Bones in the Valley is a gorgeous, lived-in novel, and Bouman's turns of phrase are chest-clutching in their beauty."
"A novel to fall in love with. A love story with a rugged sense of humor and a tender criminal at its heart. It's also a story of forgiveness, and the novel's final pages will leave you a little bit breathless, a little bit trying not to cry."
