These Lowly Objects

Advance Praise for These Lowly Objects 

✺”Cate McGowan’s novel, These Lowly Objects, is a vertiginous, absinthe dream, a kaleidoscope of alchemized selves, reminiscent of Hawkes’s The Lime Twig, Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn, or Adler’s Speedboat – a steep precipice, a fierce cataract of language like nothing I’ve read, a gorgeous outwitting of time, a slipping of the sleeve of self/selves through a high wire act of literary imagination. Brava!”
          —Melissa Pritchard, author of Palmerino and A Solemn Pleasure

✺”I have been a longtime fan of McGowan’s short stories so a debut novel from her is cause for celebration.  She has given us not only a novel but an epic, written in her unmistakably lyrical voice that shines with deep emotion and intelligence.  This is a must-read.”           
           —Silas House, author of Southernmost


These Lowly Objects is forthcoming from Gold Wake Press in early 2020. Stay tuned for more information!
