"Try a novel you can't put down: THE DOGS OF BABEL by Carolyn Parkhurst....This tightly woven tale has all the right stuff: romance, suspense, fantasy, and an ending that does not disappoint."


"A poignant, affecting tale. . . . Parkhurst delivers a remarkable debut in quiet, authoritative prose. . . . Highly recommended."

"The brilliance of Parkhurst's novel lies in the subtle buildup of emotion as Paul digs deeper and deeper to discover the truth about the woman he loved. . . . The beauty of the novel lies in how powerfully that emotional wave hits the reader. An unforgettable debut."
