To be sure, the seventeen stories that make up this startling debut are not always easy for us to behold, for Yannick Murphy is never reluctant to render her vision as it occurs to her - and what occurs to her is a version of youth too terrifyingly familiar to us all, so reminiscent is it of the overwrought childhoods we do out utmost not to remember. Here is a literary artist who restores to us the lost history of what it was to be a child. Here, too, is a young writer at the beginning of a great achievement. View more info

Splitting time between a ramshackle apartment and a lonel;y hot dog vendor, the observant thirteen-year-old who stands steadily at the center of "Here They Come" gives lyrical voice to an unforgettable instant - 1970s New York, stifling, violent, and full of life. Balanced between her enigmatic siblings, borderline parents, and a quiet sense of the surreal, she recounts a year of startling moments with dark humor and deadpan resilience. View more info
