Akashic is now the host publisher for Kaylie’s newest endeavor, Kaylie Jones Books, an imprint created to publish writers who bravely address serious issues—historical or contemporary—relevant to society today.
Kaylie Jones has published seven books, including a memoir, Lies My Mother Never Told Me. Her most recent novel, The Anger Meridian is available now from Akashic.
Praise for The Anger Meridian:
“Jones . . . has written a compulsively readable novel about a woman who manages to come into her own. With engaging characters, a compelling story, and a seductive sense of place, this is a literary treat.”
“Jones creates a seething portrait of a narcissistic mother in this story of an adult daughter’s attempt to reconcile the appearance of her prosperous and successful family with the harsh reality of a life built on a series of lies. . . . Jones keeps the action churning . . . but perhaps the novel’s greatest feat is Bibi, an all-too-real toxic monster of a mother.”
“A fast-paced story of a woman who only stops lying to others once she stops lying to herself.”
