Small Damages: The first words from Rita Williams-Garcia and Kathryn Erskine

Monday, August 22, 2011

Those of you who have followed this blog know how graced I have been to enter the Philomel fold and to look forward, with editor Tamra Tuller and Philomel, to the publication of Small Damages next summer.  More about this Seville-inspired book can be found here.  But for the moment, I would like simply to thank the extraordinarily talented and generous authors Rita Williams-Garcia and Kathryn Erskine, who are the first to read this book in its final (gorgeously designed) galley form, beyond the good people at Philomel.  I will always be indebted to them for their words. 

"Small Damages is a wrenching celebration of choice.  To read Kephart is to splendidly dream with both eyes open."

— Rita Williams-Garcia, One Crazy Summer, 2011 Newbery Honor Book and 2011 Coretta Scott King Award Winner

"As this delicate and luscious novel unfolds, the lines are blurred between love and loss, past and present, real and magical, and even life and death."

— Kathryn Erskine, Mockingbird, 2010 National Book Award winner, and The Absolute Value of Mike
