Old Newgate Road is a wonder—a book that manages to break your heart on one page and lift you up on the next. It’s a wrenching meditation on time and forgiveness, filled with both suspense and tragedy, while presenting the possibility of renewal and redemption.”
Ivy Pochoda, author of Wonder Valley
“This gripping saga draws out themes of masculinity, sublimated trauma, and physical violence – speaking to the ways people fashion narratives out of troubled pasts to survive, resulting in a probing, tightly-plotted novel.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“That [Scribner] makes this dying industry the backdrop for a tale about generational domestic violence in…Old Newgate Road is inspired….This is a timely…book.”
