K. M. Szpara follows his explosive debut novel Docile with First, Become Ashes, a fantastic standalone adventure that explores self-discovery after trauma and outgrowing abusive origins over the course of an American road trip.
“Not a lot of writers are able to tackle trauma and healing without flinching; K. M. Szpara is one of those. I’ll be keeping an eye on this writer from here on!” —N. K. Jemisin
“Szpara has an amazing gift for immersing us in a world of exploitation and unbearable tenderness and and making it feel familiar and inescapable.” —Charlie Jane Anders on Docile“
