Happy Publication Day to A LOVING, FAITHFUL ANIMAL
The debut novel NYLON called “gorgeously written.”
Stephanie Danler wrote that it left her “aching and inspired,” and I felt the same. I found myself pausing to reread passage after passage, intoxicated by the gorgeous writing, and unprepared for the experience to end. The book is officially on sale now, and it's been named to so many "best of" lists—by Entertainment Weekly,Nylon,Refinery 29, and more—that there's no need to need to take my word for it.
