May Staff Picks

At Workman, we have just as much love for our older titles as the ones coming out this month. So we decided to start a new monthly feature highlighting the all-time favorites of our staff. Here are 4 evergreen titles we recommend year in and year out.

Wolf Whistle

by Lewis Nordan

There’s one book that, to me, exemplifies the best of what we publish. It is laugh-out-loud funny, cry-your-eyes-out sad, knock-your-socks-off audacious, and blow-your-mind inventive. It’s literature of witness, it’s Southern gothic, it’s ripped from the pages of history, yet it’s personal, written as only someone who lived just down the road from the murdered boy could have written it. It’s WOLF WHISTLE, by Lewis Nordan.

The Taco Cleanse

by Wes Allison, Stephanie Bogdanich, Molly R. Frisinger, Jessica Morris

My favorite title so far has been The Taco Cleanse because, from a publicity standpoint, it was simply so much fun to work with. Once the media caught hold of the idea they just went with it. And it’s one of the most hysterical books to try to explain to another person.
