Episode 184 — Julie Sarkissian

   

Julie Sarkissian is the guest. Her debut novel, Dear Lucy, is now available from Simon & Schuster.

Joyce Carol Oates says

Dear Lucy introduces a young writer with a most original voice and a tenderly eccentric vision.  Julie Sarkissian has created a boldly lyrical, suspenseful, and mysterious fictional world in this striking debut novel.

And Ron Rash raves

In Dear Lucy, Julie Sarkissian has accomplished what many veteran novelists never achieve: a startlingly original work that is also profound and wise in the vagaries of the heart. What an amazing debut.
