Praise for The Furthest City Light

Winner Golden Crown Literary Society, Best Debut Fiction

“An adroit page-turner with a bittersweet humor and meaty insightfulness all its own. You will laugh, cry and, if you’re a writer, wish you’d written it yourself.”

—Daniela Kuper, Author of Hunger and Thirst

“Jeanne Winer is a heart-breaking novelist who keeps us laughing while she lays bare the perils of idealism and the fragility of love . . . She’s a rarity among writers: smart, witty, and fundamentally humane.”

—Kat Duff, Author of The Alchemy of Illness and The Secret Life of Sleep

“Winer’s narrator exhibits the ‘bob and weave’ moves of a prizefighter, the humor of a Woody Allen, and the courage and heart of everybody’s favorite underdog. When she falls, we fall; when she emerges, washed up on the beach but wiser, we are the ones who learn a thing or two about what it means to be human.”

—Sawnie Morris, winner of a Poetry Society of America Award, and co-winner of the New Mexico Book Award for The Sound a Raven Makes  

“A deeply thought-provoking story about a life-and-death journey.”

Lambda Literary Review

“A fast-paced, emotionally-charged legal drama filled with urgent tension.”

—Boulder Weekly

“A story of strength, understanding, and love. You don’t want to miss it!”

—LGBT Bar Association Book Review

“A great, engrossing read.”
