On today's episode, Adam chats with debut author Cadwell Turnbull about his new science fiction novel, The Lesson. They discuss colonialism, playing with expectations and creating tension, and authors they both love and respect.

In addition to checking out The Lesson, here are two other great novels available now from their collection:
-ANOTHER LIFE by Robert Haller (June 4, 2019)
Description: Set during one summer in a small town in upstate New York, Robert Haller’s debut novel, Another Life, is a modern comedy with a dark edge, centered around an evangelical church. Christopher Castellani, author of Leading Men, praised the novel, saying: “A fresh voice meets an old soul in Robert Haller, whose Another Life won me over completely with its dark humor, refined earnestness, and uncommon wisdom.” Another Life releases from Blackstone Publishing, on June 4th in hardcover, e-book, and audio.
-BLACKBERRY AND WILD ROSE by Sonia Velton (May 7, 2019)
Description: In eighteenth-century London, a household of Huguenot silk weavers pursue the perfect silk design, while unrest among the journeyman silk weavers boils over into riot and rebellion, in Sonia Velton’s Blackberry and Wild Rose, an historical fiction debut, now available. Booklist raves “fans of Jessie Burton’s The Miniaturist will thoroughly enjoy this engrossing, atmospheric tale of two women struggling for control of their own lives.”
