We are pleased to announce that Nick Mancuso’s acclaimed novel FEVER is now heating up Woodhall Press.
The novel, which Kirkus Review calls “a character study that turns seemingly routine lives into something extraordinary,” has already achieved widespread recognition, including being longlisted for the CIBA Somerset Award.
One sweltering August. Four lives lost in a single night. On the surface, the perfect Connecticut suburban neighborhood of Staniford Drive looks like a paradise; pristine lawns, large McMansions, perfect happy families, and a peaceful decadent life. But beneath the veneer of hospitality and affluence lurks a dark current of distrust, betrayal, and lies, all to keep up appearances. Over the four weeks of one sticky, sweltering August, four neighbors' lives intersect and collide, laying bare the lies we tell to hide the brutality of suburban affluence, at the cost of four lives.
Praise for FEVER:
“Grief, isolation, sex, rage, and above all, racism fuel the page-turning action that leads to an unthinkable crescendo at the novel’s end. There is no way to read this novel except at a fever pitch.”
—Rachel Basch, author of The Listener
“Fever takes us deeply inside of the underbelly of a suburban neighborhood during the last hot month of summer. Nick Mancuso’s ability to reveal how neighbors can alter each other’s lives irrevocably is both moving and frightening. These pages crackle with heat and a frenetic pace.”
—Karen Osborn, author of Centerville
