“Carousel of Progress is wonderful, escapist, smart, and highly readable. I adored every minute in the company of Meredith Herman. This novel reminds us why we read and recommend books: to misspend our youths again.”
—Antonya Nelson, author of Living to Tell
“A vivid portrait of a teenage girl and her family in disarray. Meredith is a wonderful narrator, witty, feisty, full of yearning, and the story she tells is as complicated as life itself. This is a richly satisfying novel.”
—Margot Livesey, author of The Missing World
"Katherine Tanney’s debut novel dazzles with wit and insight. It evokes a timeless quality."
— Kinky Friedman, author of The Mile High Club
