Indies Introduce


  • We've Already Gone This Far, Patrick Dacey
    Henry Holt, 9781627794657, February 16, 2016 (Fiction)

    Dacey’s perfectly crafted short stories of a blue-collar Massachusetts town and its unforgettable characters are told with dignity and heart. They reflect the hope and determination of people who still have further to go. This is the debut of a naturally gifted storyteller.

    Mary Wolf, Collected Works Bookstore & Coffeehouse (Santa Fe, NM)

    Dacey’s stories, all set in a New England town that can be best described as “fading,” are composed of intelligent writing, but really soar because his characters refuse to be forgotten. Often darkly funny and always affecting, I found these stories lingered long after I put the book down.
