Dawnie Walton’s debut novel is both timely and nostalgic, packed equally with wit and tension. Told in the form of snippets of interviews with main and side characters alike, Walton deftly uses skills gleaned from a career as a music journalist and LIFE magazine archivist to lift this story right off the page - by the end you’ll be shocked you can’t look up Opal’s old records.

Published: Tin House Books - October 13th, 2020

Reading Negotiations is like grabbing a piece of metal so cold it feels like fire in your palm. Birdsong leverages both the eye-contact of direct confessional poetry and the ambiguity and complexity of more fluid poetic forms and expressions to create a collection that is equal parts pain and power. A challenging, exciting, even startling debut.

ISBN: 9781501166761
Published: Simon & Schuster - February 6th, 2018


A spectacular debut. These two wholly disparate stories both feature rich dialogue, complicated characters and deep questions - and a final coda at the end answers some very fundamental questions. You will definitely be hearing about this writer again and this book is a wonderful place to start.
