Attention for The Suicide of Claire Bishop

Dzanc Books

Carmiel Banasky’s debut novel, The Suicide of Claire Bishop received two notable mentions this past week. Most recently, the book was included in Bustle’s list of the 17 best books for September 2015, alongside Elena Ferrante, Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, and Claire Vaye Watkins: 

“Fans of Marisha Pessl, Donna Tartt, and Nicole Krauss, take note: with her debut The Suicide of Claire Bishop, Carmiel Banasky’s name will be mentioned confidently alongside these well-loved writers. […] Banasky flits deftly between the two story lines, painting for us a swath of cultural history between their eventual collision. The Suicide of Claire Bishop is thrilling and beautiful; it's a remarkable debut.”

The Suicide of Claire Bishop also received a five-star review from Foreword, which called the novel “a twisty, satisfying story about truth and madness.” Read the complete review at the Foreword website.
