BOOK OUT NOW AND AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE: Son of Soothsayer
The danger of blind optimism is often underestimated, but in this book, the threat is tangible and urgent. Smith does an impressive job building the menacing facets, creating suspense while also allowing readers the relief of laughing at the characters' pratfalls along the way. A perfect book for this moment, when it feels impossible to ignore the shifting dynamics of politics and community. Here is a new lens to peer through in search of that elevated empathy and understanding. - Jac Jemc, author of The Grip of It and My Only Wife
"Delightfully reminiscent of Cruddy by Lynda Barry, Smith's gift for colorful description and propulsive storytelling is intoxicating." Ben Tanzer, author of Be Cool and SEX AND DEATH
"Funny, touching, insightful, and ultimately wise, Simon A. Smith's Son of Soothsayer is a novel that delights." Terrell Isselhard - Windy City Review
Anthology of stories and artwork honoring the divine power of beds, bedrooms, and the people who seek refuge, excitement, or glory in their confines.
