Blurb: Ron Carlson

We’re overjoyed to announce the lead blurb on the back of Kate Gray’s novel, Carry the Sky. Ron Carlson’s boarding school teaching background, and his success as a novelist, short story author, and essayist, made him a perfect choice to comment on Kate’s book.

Here’s what he had to say:

“In the rich rarified world of a prep school, Kate Gray has woven two powerful personal stories into a charged and compelling human novel which shows us that swimming under that quirky, antic, off-beat community are also life and death. Gray has a sharp eye and tells her story with verve and a deft touch.”

– Ron Carlson, author of The Signal and A Kind of Flying

Carry the Sky is forthcoming on Sept. 1, with a Sept. 5 reading at Powell’s City of Books, followed by stops in Boston, Chicago, and beyond. Reviewers, a few advance copies are still available. Contact us for more information.

Books are also available for pre-order direct through the press, and will be mailed out later this month, as soon as our copies arrive from the printer.
