I'm thrilled about Cutting Teeth making The Millions "Most Anticipated 2014 Book" preview, the very list I turn to each year right before I make my must-read lists and go on a preorder binge.


And my novel is in fine company, with books by so many of my favorite writers (some I've loved since I was a girl), favorite colleagues, Sackett Street writers, and friends, including Rachel Cantor, Kyle Minor, Roxane Gay, Yiyun Li, Molly Antopol, Susan Minot, Gina Frangello, Adam Wilson, Ayelet Waldman, Elizabeth McCracken, Emma Donoghue, Mona Simpson, Anna Solomon, Eleanor Henderson, Edan Lepucki, Emma Fusco-Straub, Cristina Henriquez, Stuart Dybek, Emily Gould, Josh Weil, and more.

I'm over the moon.

I like what The Millions has to say about Cutting Teeth, especially since I just found my advanced copy in the bin holding my kids' picture books. Not sure how it got there...

"When a group of thirty-something parents gather at a ramshackle beach house called Eden, no serpent is required for the sins, carnal and otherwise, to pile up. Fierro, founder of Brooklyn’s Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop, argued in The Millions last year that writers need to put the steam—and the human sentiment—back into sex scenes in literary novels. You may want to keep Fierro’s debut novel on a high shelf, away from children and prudish literary snobs."
