Meet local author Pauline as she discusses and takes questions about her latest novel.
Armadillos is a book about journeys that have to be made with outcomes that can’t be predicted. PK Lynch can tell a story deep as a wound. A new writer unafraid of the pain scars and not scared by beauty either. Read this one. –Jeanette Winterson
On the rarest of occasions, we see a prose author who writes sentences with the precision of a poet. Lynch has that gift, constructing lines that make me salivate. And she’s got so much more: a story that’s funny and dangerous and acerbic. This is a debut that blazes like the Texas sky. –Joshua Mohr
Every line is beautifully expressed and written with such vividness, importance and passion. A marvelous debut novel that feels like it was written by an experienced novelist. –Roy Williams OBE
