Advance review copies of John Colasacco’s The Wagners are in and they’re beautiful! Book reviewers interested in obtaining a copy may contact us at alban@trnsfrbooks.com.

George Saunders has called The Wagners a “vivid, strange, and beautiful book . . . [that] made me look at the world more carefully and more affectionately,” and poet Sarah Galvin has likened reading it to “receiving your first explanation of bestiality from Mr. Rogers as he perfectly folds his collection of sweaters.” The Wagners is out July 2019.
