The Night Gwen Stacy Died

The Night Gwen Stacy Died by Sarah Bruni Cover PhotoFEATURED FICTION:

“An offbeat love story about the adventures and mutual rescue of a young woman out of place in her hometown and a mysterious stranger who calls himself Peter Parker (and begins to cast her in the role of Spider-Man’s first sweetheart), The Night Gwen Stacy Died is about first loss, first love, and finding our real identities.

“A dreamy world where comic book characters and psychic visions are as real as teenage boredom and young love, Bruni’s debut is a magical story, a white-knuckle thrill ride.” —Diana Spechler, author of Who by Fire

“The perspective shifts, slippery identities, and lurking weirdness in this book recall the peak moments of Kurosawa, Hitchcock, and Lynch. But to describe it in cinematic terms would risk slighting that bighearted, sneakily exhilarating voice that can finally be only the work of a masterful writer.” —Sean Howe, author of Marvel Comics: The Untold Story

“Bruni’s fiercely smart and delectably unpredictable first novel delivers again and again that most sought-after shiver up the spine, the chill that comes when you realize the world you thought you knew and understood is newer and stranger than you ever dared imagine. A genuine page-turner.” —Kathryn Davis, author of The Thin Place

“Mixed into this novel’s blustery atmosphere are gusts of contemporary masters, like Joy Williams, Lorrie Moore, Kelly Link, and Michael Chabon. This gave me the sort of reading experience I always hope for but almost never find: a world that somehow both resembles the one in which I live and is also unlike any other I’ve ever seen or read.” —Stefan Merrill Block, author of The Story of Forgetting

“A brave and bold new voice, Bruni takes us on an unexpected adventure of love and loss, of beginnings and ends, all the while showing us what it really means to be a hero.” —Alison Espach, author of The Adults ” (via Amazon)
