The Turning

“Set in the 1960s in a small town in Oregon, this quiet story is a touching tale about a teenager caught between adolescence and manhood. The plot develops consistently throughout the evening, and the characters are believable and well developed. This well-written story conveys the seriousness of the issues and will find a wide audience.”
    — Karen Hoth, School Library Journal

“This novel is too good to be just for teens! The apparent simplicity veils a formal complexity that will appeal to adults, which is why I liked it!”
    — Monique Wittig, author of Les Guérillères, The Opoponax, and Across the Acheron, winner of the Prix Medicis

“A superb story with a terrific theme, beautifully structured”
    — Stephen Mertz, author of Hank & Muddy and The Castro Directive
