Paula Huston’s A Land Without Sin The second novel from Slant

Paula Huston - A Land Without Sin

“In A Land Without Sin Paula Huston has written a novel that’s wise and wry, tragic and tender, and altogether thrilling. Both moved and enthralled, I couldn’t stop reading.”

Robert Clark, author of In the Deep MidwinterMr. White’s Confession, and Love Among the Ruins

We’re very excited to announce the forthcoming release of our second novel. Markedly different from our first book, a satire with lots of pathos, A Land Without Sin by Paula Huston is a labyrinth of a mystery, a cinematic story taking place in the jungles of southern Mexico. Guerrillas, disappearing priests, Dutch Mayanists, political unrest, and sweaty jungles texture the pages of our second novel. Publishers Weekly named A Land Without Sin as one of the best summer books of 2013Preorder your copy now!

We’re excited to bring Paula into our Slant fold. Her writing, including her novel Daughters of Song and several works of spiritual nonfiction, has been critically acclaimed and widely published. Paula is a National Endowment of the Arts fellow; the Best American Short Stories, Best Spiritual Writing, and more have honored her work.

A Land Without Sin: A Novel will be available on August 1, 2013.
