JENNINE CAPÓ CRUCET
Here in Seattle for Lit Crawl and able to join us for a ‘full’ reading from her wonderful, acclaimed new novel is award-winning fiction writer Jennine Capó Crucet, here with Make Your Home Among Strangers (St. Martin’s). “Captures the profound disorientation of leaving the world that reared you: Once you have made your home among strangers, home itself often transforms into a strange place. Recounted with wry humor and heartbreaking honesty, [protagonist] Lizet’s struggle is a poignant exploration of a young woman’s evolving relationship to her culture, her family, and her own identity.” - Celeste Ng. “A vivid, exuberant novel begging to be devoured in one sitting. Hilarious and relentlessly honest … an utterly American story, yet one hardly told, and Jennine Capó Crucet tells it with a combination of wisdom and urgency that is as rare as it is invigorating.” - Claire Vaye Watkins.
