Recent Press & Reviews

“The inner world of a sketchbook doodler is an expansive one, brought to life on these pages.
The locale this novel inhabits is also rendered with the aching perfection of memories of a Long Island upbringing.”

–East End Beacon (full review here)

“With prose that straddles gentle and gritty — the kind that makes a writer say, ‘Damn, I wish I wrote that’ — Ms. Gervais blurs the line between literary and commercial fiction. This book is easy to fall into, hard to put down, and satisfying to the end.”
