Catapult Receives Rave Reviews, Shawn Wen Gives Voice to Marceau, and Kiki Petrosino Shares Favorite Lit Journals

The reviews for our latest title, Catapult by Emily Fridlund, are in! Here are a few snippets from our favorites this week: 

"[Catapult] shines a light on the ugly truths in relationships, discovers all the ways in which its characters aren’t quite compatible with one another and forces them into (often quiet) confrontations. This collection is as intelligent as it is incisive."
The Masters Review, October Book Review 

"Fridlund writes exceptional character-driven fiction, and her stories bristle with a menacing domestic intensity that few writers can capture."
Sinkhole Mag, "Under the Microscope"

"Wen is infusing every word with as much power as Marceau used in each muscle to mime, say, kissing a woman, or drawing a last breath, in a way that was artistic but also human."
IndyWeek, "Shawn Wen’s Unorthodox Book About Mime Somehow Gives Voice to the Eloquent Silence of Marcel Marceau
