ELIZABETH PERCER

As if arguing that life begins in the root of a word, Percer's moving and miraculous poems echo with a curiosity both 'tender' and 'invasive,' and prove, by their primal and presumptive longing, that language itself can be umbilical: at once clinical and lyrical. 

-- Robin Ekiss, poet and author of The Mansion of Happiness

Elizabeth Percer explores big themes of love, longing, loss, and, of course, survival. All Stories are Love Stories is a moving reminder of the way stories connect, and the way we connect through stories, as well as a gorgeous contemplation of the stabilizing force of love. 


-- Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Race for Paris

Eloquent, haunting and exquisitely written, Percer’s stunning debut finds surprising beauty in the broken places of our lives. Here, winning can’t mute pain, but love endures despite the odds, and the education of a remarkable young woman is as uncommonly original as this novel itself.


-- Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You
