Another book I'm reading is the forthcoming couplet of novellas, Could You Be With Her Now, by the amazing indie writer, Jen Michalski. Each novellas is startling with bravery and a mastery of language and pacing. Also, they couldn't be more different, which is no small feat - to have such range. I can't wait for more of the world to know about Jen Michalski.
