Making the book lists -Good Morning America & Alta Journal

If I Were the Ocean, I’d Carry You Home is featured on two new October book lists: Zibby Owens’ Good Morning America list of “15 October books to make you think and feel” and Alta Journal of the West’s list as well.

“Pete Hsu’s debut story collection chronicles scenes from a life adrift in this reflection on the many ways we’re expected to adapt to the world today.” – Zibby Owens, Good Morning America

“This debut collection follows a slew of children and young adults as they move through the quotidian patterns of life—celebrating birthdays, enjoying beach parties, attending church events—while also being thrust into grim, chaotic, and violent situations. Hsu’s stories expose the irresistible urge to search for hope within a depraved world.” – Alta Journal

If I Were the Ocean, I’d Carry You Home launches October 11th. Pre-order now wherever fine books are sold. Or come get a copy live and in-person at SKYLIGHT BOOKS in Los Feliz, CA on Oct-11th; or at BEL CANTO BOOKS in Long Beach, CA on Oct-18th.
