longblackveil

A hot summer day.  Six friends from college.  An abandoned prison.  A disappearance. A murder. In Long Black Veil, Jennifer Finney Boylan brings her readers a literary thriller, a dark tale of mystery and revelation that also explores the meaning of identity, loyalty, and love.

“In the tradition of Donna Tarttt…Jennifer Finney Boylan has crafted a thriller that’s intellectual, existential, and compulsively readable.  If change is the only constant in life, how much can a person reinvent himself and still be the same?  Long after the last page is turned, you will be thinking about the nature of identity, the pull of the past, and whether you can ever outrun the person you used to be.”  — Jodi Picoult, NYT Bestselling author of SMALL GREAT THINGS and LEAVING TIME

stuck-673x1024

A memoir about the differences between motherhood and fatherhood.

“No other memoirist I’ve read so perfectly blends intimacy and witty remove, soul-searching and slapstick, joy and pain. As a child—or as a reader—one could not ask for a wiser, warmer, more engaging companion than Jennifer Finney Boylan.”

i'mlookingthroughyou

A memoir about growing up in a haunted house—and a reflection on what it means to be “haunted.”

As the Guardians—the monster-slayers led by his mother, Vega—prepare for war with Monster Island, Falcon has to find the answer to a hard question: In which world does he belong?

bitchisback

This sequel to The Bitch in the House—the bestselling anthology of women’s experience—finds its contributing authors older, wiser, and (getting) happier. Jenny Boylan’s contribution is the essay “Vagina Notwithstanding,” a meditation on the ways it is sometimes necessary to go through a period of great turmoil in order to find solace.

“There is no bitterness here, only the eloquence of honesty…the reader is tempted, in the face of such truthfulness, to set the book down and say, ‘Thank you.”

–Elizabeth Strout
