How does a writer know when she’s hit the big time? Is it when Vanity Fair describes her fiction as “dazzling,” or when the Chicago Tribune declares her prose “daring and delicious"? Author Samantha Hunt should know, having been the recipient of such coveted acclaim for her 2008 novel The Invention of Everything Else. She is at it again, earning high praise for her latest work, the ghostly Mr. Splitfoot, a contemporary gothic that Publishers Weekly calls “storytelling at its best.” Spinning a dual narrative, alternating between the tales of mystical siblings Ruth and Nat and Ruth’s future niece Cora, Hunt captivates readers from cover to cover. The New York-based wordsmith woos lit lovers with a discussion at Phoenix Books Burlington.

Price: $3.
