April 18, 2019
Anna Pitoniak’s forthcoming NECESSARY PEOPLE has already received two starred trade reviews from Kirkus and Publishers Weekly.

Deceptively nuanced, and impossible to put down, this is escapism with substance.” Publishers Weekly says NECESSARY PEOPLE is “fantastic… Will hook readers from the get-go.” Finally, Marie Claire included NECESSARY PEOPLE in its Best Women’s Fiction of 2019 (So Far) roundup in January.
