Powell's Books Review-a-Day

If you've never been to Powell's City of Books in Portland, Oregon, it's an amazing place. It's like the Home Depot (in a good way) of books. I read there in June and wandered around open-mouthed, astonished at all the literature. They even have a space dedicated to experimental, small pressy stuff... needless to say I was in heaven.

Anyway, they chose my book as a part of their Review-a-Day program. Thanks Powell's for saying such amazing things about the novel! Here's the first sentence:

Joshua Mohr's debut novel is that rare literary gem: the kind of story that envelops you so wholly, you forget that you're reading.
