This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! by Jonathan Evison
On Sale September 8, 2015

“Once again, Jonathan Evison dazzles . . . This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! is as sweet as it is inventive, profound as it is hilarious, unflinching as it is bighearted.” —Maria Semple, author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette

The Muralist by B. A. Shapiro
On Sale November 3, 2015

“Shapiro once again pens the art world into vivid, sensual life. If you liked The Art Forger, you're going to love The Muralist!” —Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice

The Last September by Nina de Gramont
On Sale September 15, 2015

“A moody murder mystery . . . De Gramont's latest boasts lovely, understated writing, sharply drawn settings--Boulder, Amherst, and Cape Cod--and, once again, characters who are irresistibly attractive, flawed, and dangerous . . . But it is also an emotionally intense study of how a transcendent love becomes a fraying marriage . . . A fine literary whodunit from an accomplished storyteller.” —Kirkus Reviews

And West Is West by Ron Childress
On Sale October 13, 2015

“This compelling debut novel, which won the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, dramatically examines the insidious role unrestrained technology plays in the moral and ethical corruption of people, institutions, and government . . . This is an excellent, suspenseful story.” —Publishers Weekly

Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Ed Tarkington
On Sale January 5, 2016

“Kept me turning pages enthralled. Only Love Can Break Your Heart is part The Graduate, part southern gothic dysfunctional family, part Edisto, part The Moviegoer. It’s all Ed Tarkington, though. Funny, desperate, sad, tender, suspenseful, intelligent, insightful, and full of nothing but heart, heart, heart.” —George Singleton, author of Between Wrecks
 
The Fall of Princes by Robert Goolrick
On Sale August 25, 2015

“A heart-wrenching, beautiful, darkly comic, deeply necessary tale that stuns again and again with razor-sharp prose and glittering wit. Goolrick is, without question, one of the greatest storytellers of our time.” —Téa Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife
