Critical Praise

"John Shors is an author of sweeping imaginative force."

Sandra Gulland, author of The Josephine B. Trilogy

"A master storyteller…Shors weaves psychological intrigue by looking at his characters’ competing desires: love, revenge, and meaning.  Both lyrical and deeply imaginative, Beside a Burning Sea confirms again that Shors is an immense talent."

Amy Tan
