We’re so excited for OS author Susanna Daniel (#134 “Stiltsville“), whose novel Stiltsville has been garnering acclaim from all over the literary world. Amazon.com called it “disarmingly good” and named it one of the top 10 debut novels for 2010, Barnes & Noble selected it for their Discover Great New Writers series, and Publishers Weekly called it “an exquisite debut…beautifully told.”
Oprah.com is the latest to feature Stiltsville by selecting it for the 2011 Summer Reading List. Daniel’s book “stands out due to its lovely, unexpected normalcy,” they wrote, though many others have noted it for its lush descriptions, honest characterization, and the quiet compelling power that certainly caught my attention when I first encountered Daniel’s work through One Story. You can check out her website here to see more about what critics are saying, learn more about her experiences as a writer, and see what she’s up to next. Congratulations, Susanna!
