Publishers Weekly Names The Girl Who Fell From the Sky One of Season's Top 10 Debuts

Publishers Weekly, publishing's leading trade publication, counts The Girl Who Fell From the Sky among the season's most promising debuts. “This moving portrait of a young girl will remind readers of Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye and Jamaica Kincaid's Annie John,” says publicity director Michael Taeckens. Winner of the Bellwether Prize for Fiction, the novel is, says best-selling writer Barbara Kingsolver: “Haunting and lovely, pitch-perfect.  This book could not be more timely.”

Other titles on the magazine's top ten include: Belinda Bauer's Blacklands, Adam Haslett's (a fellow Yale Law grad) Union Atlantic, and Victor Lodato's Mathilda Savitch. Read the complete story here. [PDF]
