"A Ship Made of Paper is a tempestuous, absorbing journey into the human psyche." Time Out "Astonishing...Shrewd, compassionate and unflinching, this new book takes a perilous journey that leaves readers stranded on the shoals with nothing for protection but their own flimsy, sinking beliefs about race and desire..." San Francisco Chronicle "[An] intelligent, extremely powerful novel" Daily Mail "Irresistible" Time
'Scott Spencer is a wonderful writer.' Anne TylerA riveting and unflinching novel of an interracial love affair that threatens to destroy two families and injure everyone close to them. Devastating. Comparable to Andre Dubus III's House of Sand and Fog in its power.
