The Tide King Voted "Best Fiction," Baltimore City Paper's Best of Baltimore 2013

This was very nice to wake up to:
Jen Michalski’s The Tide King is not only the best local book we’ve read this year, it is one of the best books we’ve read, period. Its magical realism emphasizes the realism while the mystical elements allow Michalski to take a long view of her characters, whom she casts as “gods who live in hell.”
Thanks, City Paper, for making The Tide King a "Best of 2013." You can read all the winners here.
