The Press is excited to announce that we’ll be publishing Road Trip, a novella by Lynette D’Amico, in June 2015. Road Trip is a narrative of disappointment, of failed rescues, of the ghosts that haunt us, and the bones we leave behind. The novella was short-listed for the Paris Literary Prize in 2011, the centerpiece of a collection that was a finalist for the 2012 Flannery O’Connor Award in Short Fiction, and first runner-up in the Quarterly West Novella Contest earlier this year. Lynette’s short story “Ashes, Ashes,” which appeared in The Gettysburg Review, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and her creative nonfiction has also appeared in Brevity. A former advertising copy writer, Lynette is currently content editor for the online theater journal HowlRound. She lives in Boston, Massachusetts. Road Trip cover - 3000
