BEATING HEART BENEATH THE DIRT
launch for Waste by Andrew Sullivan > MARCH 23
PRAISE FOR WASTE
"Balancing tenderness and brutality in the palm of his hand, Andrew F. Sullivan has carved out his own category to capture the ugliness of the world, his words always in search and service of some beating heart beneath the dirt. With Waste, Sullivan's deft prose hammers out a harsh, hard-fought harmony that compels you to sit down and listen."
--Miriam Toews, author of All My Puny Sorrows and A Complicated Kindness
