This is what the committee had to say about my book:
"Myles Gordon’s Inside the Splintered Wood explores the angst and fickleness of family life, bravely displaying what it means to be deeply human, deeply flawed, yet deeply satisfied. The warmth, wit, and charm in these pages pull you along, demanding both your close attention and an open heart."
There are terrific descriptions of all the other selections as well. Congrats to all the finalists (we are now considered "must reads" in the Commonwealth) and award winners!
