White Nights in Split Town City by Annie DeWitt
Both coming-of-age story and cautionary tale. In her mother's absence, Jean is torn between the adult world and her surreal fantasies of escape as she and Fender build a fort to survey the rumors of their town.
“A bold word-drunk novel by a wonderful new writer.” – Ben Marcus
“White Nights in Split Town City is a ferocious tumble of a book, told from the wild edge of the 90s. Follow the sharp wonder of Jean’s voice through the electrifying night of this novel and you will emerge breathless, exhilerated, changed. Annie DeWitt is a daring and spectacular new talent.” – Laura van den Berg
