“Josh Rolnick is a wonderful observer and a beautiful storyteller. Each story in Pulp and Paper is a path to the hearts of Rolnick’s characters, who, like you and me, strive to be their true, honest selves despite follies and weaknesses. A truly compassionate collection.”
—Yiyun Li, author, A Thousand Years of Good Prayers, The Vagrants, and Gold Boy, Emerald Girl
Pulp and Paper captures lightning in a bottle, excavating the smallest steps people take to move beyond grief, heartbreak, and failure — conjuring the subtle, fragile moments when people are not yet whole, but no longer quite as broken.
