In episode 001 of the Monkeybicycle podcast, our pal Kevin Sampsell reads from his new novel, This is Between Us (Tin House Books).
What reviews are saying:
“well written . . . . consisting of telling moments and epiphanies rendered in precise, poetic prose.” —Publishers Weekly
“Sampsell moves on from the personal essays of his book A Common Pornography, and gives readers this sad and sweet tale of a love that doesn’t seem right.” —Flavorwire (picked This Is Between Us as a 10 Must-Read Books for November)
“The warmer moments in this novel have all the real-life glow of a flowering relationship. Sampsell’s crafting of these scenes is commendable. He is unafraid of the ‘unmentionables,’ and gracefully and bravely takes on these characters’ many sex scenes…” —Bustle
