FRIENDSWOOD by Rene Steinke

Rene Steinke’s FRIENDSWOOD was reviewed in O Magazine and Booklist. Booklist said, “With exceptional perception and deft artistry, Steinke (Holy Skirts, 2005) traces a matrix of poisonous acts in this magnetizing and sensitive tale of hidden dangers, the tyranny of the status quo, trust betrayed, crimes personal and planetary, and individuals transformed.”

O Magazine said, “Masterfully observed…tender and harrowing…How we fail ourselves, how we confront those failures, and how we help one another attempt redemption—these are the novel’s central issues. The lush, tranquil setting only heightens the characters’ inner struggles. Steinke has a painter’s eye…This is a place you live in as you read.” Riverhead publishes the book on August 14, 2014.
