Praise For Found Objects

In this fluent, engaging novel, Peter Gelfan penetrates a modern family’s domestic arrangement and exposes in keen, artful detail what happens when it comes under threat and begins to unravel. A wise, rueful tale for our times, unerringly told, by a masterful writer.”
Tony Cohan, bestselling author of Canary, On Mexican Time, and Valparaiso

Peter Gelfan's debut novel is a thought-provoking, sophisticated exploration of an unconventional domestic arrangement.’ With spare, finely tuned writing and authentic, witty dialogue, Gelfan breathes real life into his photographer protagonist and creates a story that manages to feel highly surprising, even shocking, yet be absolutely familiar. It's sexy, slyly funny, and highly readable. Found Objects works its way subtly into your conformist consciousness and then carries you, enthralled and believing, right to the last page.”
Fran Dorf, author of Saving Elijah (Publishers Weekly starred review)
