"Like Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo, The Weight of a Piano is a visionary work about the madness inherent in all art and the burdens of history that give rise to art and must be carried in turn. The miracle of this wonderful novel is to place an object, weighted with history, in a locale where we would never expect to find it, making the unexpected both palpable and real, and by doing so, this beautiful, intricate novel gives us one indelible picture after another, each one written in a different key."--Charles Baxter


The Shadows We Hide is “...a taut, intelligent, heart-ripping story that explores the darkest places in the human psyche.”
William Kent Krueger


The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls - “I was immediately taken by the power and honesty of Anissa Gray’s voice. She is a writer to watch, and this debut is not to be missed!”—Terry McMillan, New York Times bestselling author of I Almost Forgot About You and Waiting to Exhale.  


Daughters of the Lake  - "Well-delineated characters and a suspenseful plot make this a winner."  -Publisher's Weekly

"Simultaneously melancholy and sweet at its core."  -Kirkus
