Indies Introduce


  • Hide, Matthew Griffin
    Bloomsbury Publishing, 9781632863386, February 16, 2016 (Fiction)

    In a struggling small town in North Carolina lives the long-married couple Frank and Wendell.These are not characters we usually see in fiction – poor, rural, gay, and old – but Griffin draws them honestly, and we come to care deeply for them. 

    Michael Barnard, Rakestraw Books, (Danville, CA)

    Quiet, powerful, and moving. A very realistic look at the quiet desperation of aging and loss—the pain and distortion of a life spent in hiding in the years before two men in a small town could live openly as a couple. This will stick with me for a long, long time

    Anmiryam Budner, Main Point Books, Bryn Mawr, PA
