“Tragedy and blessing. Leave them
alone long enough and it gets real hard
to tell them apart.”






“Smart, unsettling, and meticulously composed, Margo Catts’ debut novel affirms the power of narrative to redeem.”

author of Because a Fire Was in My Head

author of A Long, Long Time Ago and Essentially True
