Independent press specializing in literary fiction
“Author and songwriter Burke’s . . . portrayal of academic arts administration is both good-natured and razor-sharp. Enthusiastically recommended for fans of Julie Schumacher (Dear Committee Members; The Shakespeare Requirement), Jane Smiley (Moo), and Tom Perrotta (Tracy Flick Can’t Win).”
“Singer-songwriter Roche probes the secrets of a small American town in this immersive character-driven tale. . . . Roche’s deep understanding of [the characters] will keep readers engaged all the way to the end.”
“Finally, the great indie-rock novel. . . . A heart-bruising story—like Dostoevsky in a DIY punk space.”
“The writing is exquisite. . . . Wonderful characters, beautiful plotting, and a dramatic finale add up to a splendid novel.”
