"Riveting" is the only word that can adequately describe Merritt Tierce's debut. The prose is as precise, tight, and captivating. The narrative is so resonant that you will ache with Marie, the protagonist, as she falls farther and farther past salvation. My favorite novel of the year so far. ~ Reviewed by Lily Ringler

A refreshing, satirical romp through the literary world, following the hilariously drawn cast of characters as they await the result of the prestigious Elysian Prize. Corruption, liaisons and a murder plot ensue. A laugh-out-loud must-read if you follow any of the hoopla surrounding literary prizes. ~ Reviewed by Lily Ringler

What starts as the genteel story of a young woman and her mother taking on lodgers in their large suburban home in post-World War I England turns into a psychological drama about whether or not love and passion can withstand the dangers of doubt and trauma. Full of intrigue that will keep your guessing to the final page. ~ Reviewed by Lily Ringler
