FRIENDSWOOD by Rene Steinke

Rene Steinke’s FRIENDSWOOD was reviewed in the New York Times Book Review and the Literary Review. The New York Times Book Review says, “it has an undeniable grace, reminding us that respite can be found even in emergent sorrow.” The Literary Review said, “The lyrical new novel by National Book Award Finalist René Steinke is the kind of 300-plus-page book that devours you in a couple of afternoons…

The prose is nimble but sure-footed, the narrative suspenseful and engrossing… Friendswood is a rare blend of beautiful, suspenseful, and seemingly artless prose—you may stay up past bedtime to find out how everything turns out—but also of optimism: hope minus any form of proselytization…And it’s also one hell of a read.” Riverhead published the book on August 14, 2014.
