KIRKUS Reviews Halle Butler's JILLIAN!

The first advance review of Halle Butler's debut novel Jillian is in from Kirkus Reviews

"[Jillian] offers up its characters for hatred and ridicule with such energy, obsessive detail and hopelessness that the reader can't help but read on, through exasperating flinches of sympathy and recognition. A novel that reads like rubbernecking or a junk-food binge, compelling a horrified fascination and bleak laughter in the face of outrageously painted everyday sadness."

Read the full review from Kirkus here, an interview with Halle here, and pre-order the book today to read all about Megan's "mental squalor" and Jillian's "brittle and overblown optimism."

Congratulations, Halle!
