Coming in June 2020
New from the author of The Widow Nash, on sale January 2021 from Counterpoint Press
"A sharply intelligent, warmhearted embrace of human imperfection―the kind of book that invites a second reading."
― Kirkus Reviews
"This doesn’t feel like a work of fiction. It feels real, like reading someone’s diary. I’m left convinced that these characters have immortal souls, and I find comfort in their familiarity. I want to spend more time in their world, urging them to whisper their secrets in my ear. A brilliant book―I wish I could write like this."
―Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
"The Center of Everything slips deftly through time, all the while taking the reader to the marvelous unfolding of secrets (both wondrous and murderous) that were right before our eyes. How beautifully our attention is distracted and illuminated in this resonant novel."
―Joan Silber, author of Improvement, winner of the Pen/Faulkner and National Book Critics Circle Award
“The Center of Everything is a bighearted, feet-on-the-ground, bracing, intelligent book. Its people will endure in readers' memories, page after compelling page."
"Jamie Harrison wields a mighty pen with precision and care. . . She has that rare gift of making a fictional story sound like the real thing."―Linda Bond, Auntie's Bookstore (Spokane, WA)
"A novel filled with memories both certain and filled with doubt at the same time. I loved it!"―Anne Holman, The King's English Bookshop (Salt Lake City, UT)
