New Look! New Books!

As you may have noticed, this website has a new look! Thanks go to Deborah Kim, who did the lovely design. I haven’t stopped blogging. I just do most of my personal blogging over on Tumblr. I’m going to use this space for book news.

And speaking of book news, An Untamed State, out on May 6, received a starred review in Library Journal. Here is the best part:

VERDICT Gay brilliantly writes of the story’s external events while skillfully capturing Mireille’s internal anguish. Not since Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper has an author so effectively captured the descent into mental instability.

Other book news, very soon!
