The thing that sets the best literature and fiction apart this month is the remarkable number of impressive debuts. But let's begin with the latest novel by Hannah Tinti, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley. In this thrilling and redemptive road trip story, the checkered past of pa Hawley is revealed, one bullet wound at a time. Reviewer Al Woodworth said that, "Tinti’s gritty, deeply flawed characters are rendered with such empathy that it’s impossible not to root for them. [The novel] is full of action, heart and men and women living on the edge of society."
