The Book Looks Normal-Sized

Acts of terrorism happen every day. But here in America, they often seem far away, perpetrated by people and cultures foreign to us. Not so in Scott Blackwood's newest novel, See How Small. It tells the story of a random act of violence that devastates the residents of a small Texas town. The narrative chronicles the survivors, the witneses, the suspects and the community members, all of whom live under a shadow of loss and fear.
