Bianca Stone’s IDIOT SAVANT is a collection of fragments: poetry, comics, collage and commentary in the spirit of a comic book “Christmas special.” Twenty pages of darkly humorous comics, IDIOT SAVANT tells a bittersweet winter story of a woman in crisis through a disintegrating narrative, and odd japes. It is a perfectly imperfect addition to any holiday shelf.

Glaser's glinty-sharp, beautifully turned, irresistible debut novel, PAULINA & FRAN, about two friends at an unnamed New England art school. Everything you remember about being in school, falling in friendship and rivalry and resentment and lust and love, is compressed into this novel like raw minerals into gems.."
