Daniel Torday with his new novel, and his debut novella The Sensualist



Congratulations to our friend and Nouvella author Daniel Torday on the publication of his new novelThe Last Flight of Poxl West, from St. Martin’s Press. It’s got a great review in the New York Times, and we know it’s gonna be a smashing success! And we’re thrilled to announce a second printing of his first published novella—and National Jewish Book Awards winner—The Sensualist, available now from the Nouvella store.


Congrats again, Dan! We can’t wait to see what’s next.


Read some reactions to The Sensualist

Masterful […] fast and warm, fraught and intimate—and no slouch in the funny department, either.”

—Adam Levin
author of The Instructions


“[…] an altogether new kind of historical fiction […] With subtlety, humor, and compassion, Torday gives us a coming of age story that is also a record of war’s second life, lived by the generation who never experienced war directly, but who proceed through life in its inescapable shadow.”

—Karen Russell
author of Swamplandia!


“Daniel Torday has clearly mastered the acoustics of experience, the mechanics of how the small actions of anyone, of everyone, echo and resonate against the history we all share […] A brilliant debut.”

—Robin Black
author of If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This

“But The Sensualist does more than that: quietly, carefully, beneath the surface, it charts the arc of a childhood lost, a life irrevocably turned […] will stay with you long after you set this beautiful book down.”

—Josh Weil
author of The New Valley


“This passionate, powerful and shrewdly observed novella packs a massive emotional wallop.”

—Adrienne Miller
author of The Coast of Akron
