Description

Daniel's first novel Among Strange Victims got a lot of critical attention and bookseller love. Ramifications maintains the same playful use of language, sly sense of humor, and charming digressive tendencies, but with more introspection and emotional depth. Its more straightforward structure will also broaden its appeal to a wider audience. Christina MacSweeney has a strong fan base of her own, and we're glad to be strengthening our translation list through deepening relationships with previously published authors, as well as signing new ones.
