About the Book


A short, lyrical debut novel about love, loss, work, time and the unquenchable desire for connection with others --- for fans of Jenny Offill, Mieko Kawakami, David Szalay and Sheila Heti.

The second time you came, we went from bar to bar to bar. It made the city feel smaller. Like a map we were folding to the size of a stamp. We were good at that. We could have fit an entire universe inside a matchbox.

Exquisitely crafted, richly imagined and as funny as it is moving, HOURGLASS is an unusual and uniquely told love story. Turning time upside down, it combs the wreckage of personal heartbreak for something universal and asks what it means to lose what you love.
