LoveReading Says

A deeply touching tale of an unlikely friendship in the face of tragedy. This is a simply stunning debut novel that had publishers fighting over it and deserves to be read. Originally from New York, Carol Rifka Brunt currently lives in Devon with her husband and three children.

A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher...Jenny Geras Editorial Director, Fiction, Macmillan.

'I first read Tell the Wolves I’m Home in February, when Carol’s agent sent it to me on submission, and I am not exaggerating when I say I was pretty sure that I wanted to publish it by the time I’d reached the end of the first paragraph.  Reading fiction is a very personal experience, and so I naïvely thought and hoped that I would be the only editor in London who this book spoke to in this particular way, who recognised its brilliance, and its author’s huge talent. But of course this was not the case, and we had to bid in a very competitive 5-way auction in order to publish it. Rightly so, and the Pan Macmillan office literally broke out in applause when I announced that we had won that auction.

It is a book about all the things that matter: family, friendship, love, life and death. The narrator June has the most wonderful voice, simultaneously innocent and wise, and her story about finding hope and making sense of her life after the loss of a loved one is a story that so many readers will relate to. It is astonishingly accomplished for a first novel, and had I not known it was a debut, I would not have believed it. When you read Tell the Wolves I’m Home, I hope that you will love it too.
