Can You See Anything Now?, a debut novel, follows a year in the small town of Trinity where the tragedy and humility of a few reveal the reality of people's motivations and desires.
This is a story without veneer, and for readers who prefer reality to sanitized fiction—this book is unsentimental, and yet grace-filled.
The characters here are complex and intriguing —the suicidal painter, Margie, who has been teaching her evangelical neighbor, Etta, how to paint nudes; her husband, the town therapist, who suspects his work helps no one; and their college aged daughter Noel—whose roommate, Pixie, joins them at home for a winter holiday.
“Katherine James just might be a genius. If you’re a redemption chaser, you’ll love this book. If you
hate redemption stories, you’re going to love this book.”—Leslie Leyland Fields, Author
