Cari Luna’s debut novel, The Revolution of Every Day, published by Tin House in 2013, delves into the 1990s New York squatting movement by peeling back the politics and exploring individual characters, their histories and personalities, their choices and mistakes, and how much they care about their buildings. It’s so much about community.
We were so excited that Cari agreed to blurb Kate Gray’s, Carry the Sky, about a very different kind of community: boarding school. Here’s what she had to say.
“Carry the Sky is as intricate and precise as the paper cranes its characters fold. It comes as no surprise that Kate Gray is a poet as well as a fine novelist. Here we are surely in a poet’s hands, her lyricism and attention to detail elevating the boarding-school narrative to something heartbreaking and truly universal.”
– Cari Luna, author of The Revolution of Every Day
Carry the Sky will be available Sept. 1 at your independent bookstore or online. The launch reading is Friday, Sept. 5, at 7:30 p.m. at Powell’s City of Books in the legendary Pearl Room.
