Praise for Scott Nadelson's Between You and Me
"Between You and Me is both enormously entertaining and seriously moving. Nadelson reports on the human condition with joy, humor, and lapidary insightfulness. Between You and Me is one of the best books I've read in a long while." --Christine Sneed, author of Paris, He Said and Little Known Facts
"Scott Nadelson has an uncanny way of getting under the skin of his characters and capturing the day-to-day rhythms of complex lives. Between You and Me is a clear-eyed, generous, intricately structured, and ultimately profoundly moving novel." --Peter Orner, author of Love and Shame and Love
The characters in Scott Nadelson's latest collection abandon their lands of origin, sever their roots, and distance themselves from the people they once were. These stories roam geographically and historically, featuring a would-be assassin in 1920s Paris, Jewish utopians in 1880s Oregon, teenage girls seeking revenge in 1980s New Jersey, and modern-day suburbanites writing the stories of their own lives among their casts of beautifully rendered outcasts and seekers. An Oregon Book Award Fiction Finalist.
