Winner can do smart (though occasionally foolish) middle-aged female, difficult young guy, even more difficult old guy as well as a host of minor characters from scampering children to a crusted octogenarian.”

"...De la Cuesta's novel maintains an accumulating power which holds onto a reader's attention not only through the forceful figure of Ordóñez, but by demonstrating actuely how ordinary lives are impacted by the underlying social and political landscape. Compelling reading."
—Tom Tolnay, author of Selling America and This Is the Forest Primeval

Twelve Rivers of the Body

Twelve Rivers of the Body
2008 (ISBN 13: 978-1-928589-44-0)
$20.00 (pb)
by Elizabeth Oness

Winner of the 2007 Gival Press Novel Award.

"Twelve Rivers of the Body lyrically evokes downtown Washington, DC in the 1980s, before the real estate boom, before gentrification, as the city limped from one crisis to another—crack addiction, AIDS, a crumbling infrastructure. This beautifully evoked novel traces Elena's imperfect struggle, like her adopted city's, to find wholeness and healing."—Kim Roberts, author of The Kimnama

“Mr. Murphy is a very careful craftsman in his work, a patient and testing intelligence, one of those writers who knows precisely what he wants his style to achieve. His poetry is quiet but packed, carefully wrought, not surrealistically wild, and its range not limited but deliberately narrow. It takes aim.”—Derek Walcott
