new blurb from author David Abrams

“It’s hard to believe The Longest Night is Andria Williams’s debut novel. Her command of language, character, and plot—the three essential ingredients for a riveting read—is extraordinary. The Longest Night is about the fragility of a marriage, a Cold War nuclear accident on the plains of Idaho, and the stresses on a military family during deployment, and it takes on each of those things with all the robust storytelling energy of the great Russian novelists of the nineteenth century. This is the book I will be pressing into my friends’ hands this year when they ask me what they should be reading.—David Abrams, author of Fobbit

I’m grateful to David Abrams (author of the hilarious, brilliant Fobbit and the man behind The Quivering Pen, a terrific blog about books) for these kind words. He also listed The Longest Night as one of his “Favorite Books of 2015 (So Far)” — I’ll gladly tolerate his slight cheating on my little book’s behalf even though it doesn’t technically come out ’til early 2016. I love how he paired a quote with the cover image:

The Longest Night
by Andria Williams

It was improper to be lonely; it was improper to be bored; it was improper, most of all, to be filled with anything like longing.
