Jamie Quatro's debut novel, Fire Sermon, is forthcoming in January 2018 with Grove Press (U.S.), Picador (U.K.), Atlas Contact (The Netherlands), and Anansi International (Canada).

 
 

“It's rare, to the point of near non-existence, to find a book that has such literary weight and heft, yet reads like a sonnet. I look at it in puzzlement, wondering how Jamie Quatro gave such breadth, depth and intensity in so few words. And it's funny, and real, and painful, so painful. Also a shot of light. An education. A mirror. Terrifying.”

—Samantha Harvey (author of The Wilderness and Dear Thief)

Married twenty years to Thomas and living in Nashville with their two children, Maggie is drawn ineluctably into a passionate affair while still fiercely committed to her husband and family.  What begins as a platonic intellectual and spiritual exchange between writer Maggie and poet James, gradually transforms into an emotional and erotically-charged bond that challenges Maggie’s sense of loyalty and morality, drawing her deeper into the darkness of desire.

Forthcoming January 2018 from Grove Press (USA), Picador (UK), Anansi International (Canada), Atlas Contact (Netherlands), and Minimum Fax (Italy).
