Can You See Anything Now?: A Novel (paraclete Fiction)
Marissa's Books & Gifts, LLC
Winner of the Christianity Today 2018 Fiction Book Award Can You See Anything Now?, a debut novel, follows a year in the small town of Trinity where the tragedy and humility of a few reveal the reality of people’s motivations and desires. This is a story without veneer, and for readers who prefer reality to sanitized fiction—this book is unsentimental, and yet grace-filled. The characters here are complex and intriguing—the suicidal painter, Margie, who has been teaching her evangelical neighbor, Etta, how to paint nudes; her husband, the town therapist, who suspects his work helps no one; and their college-aged daughter Noel—whose roommate, Pixie, joins them at home for a winter holiday.
