Order Signed or Personalized Copy of Heather Newton's McMullen Circle

McMullen Circle:  from the author of the award-winning Under the Mercy Trees comes a masterful set of connected short stories making up a novel. 

The twelve linked stories in McMullen Circle explore the intertwined lives of faculty families at the McMullen Boarding School in Georgia in 1969–70. The school community is isolated and idyllic, yet issues of race and the Vietnam War still intrude.

"Heather Newton is a beautiful writer and McMullen Circle is a beautiful book, written with compassion, humor and unflinching honesty. I love these stories, and as standalone pieces, each is compelling in its own way, often breathtakingly so. And read as a whole, the stories transcend the individual characters, offering a complex, conflicted and empathetic portrait of this North Georgia boarding school and its community. The whole time I was reading McMullen Circle, I was reminded again and again of Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio." —Tommy Hays, author of The Pleasure Was Mine
