Paula Whyman

I like my characters complicated. People are complicated.

You May See A Stranger – Paula Whyman

While I was reading YOU MAY SEE A STRANGER by Paula Whyman, I kept thinking about Carrie Bradshaw and my adventures in accidental homewrecking, and how Whyman’s protagonist Miranda Weber is, on paper, an utter mess in a way even Carrie would never let herself be.

Relief Map – Rosalie Knecht

Reviewers might describe RELIEF MAP as a coming-of-age novel but I’m disinclined to characterize it as such, because the term to me implies a more histrionic change in character or situation than in the novel.
