Praise for The Girl of the Lake:

“Bill Roorbach knows so well how to break your heart, how to make you fall in love, and how to see you well through both and feel so much the greater human being for it all.” Brad Watson, author of Miss Jane

Bill Roorbach’s next book is The Girl of the Lake, a collection of stories coming from Algonquin in June 2017. Also from Algonquin are The Remedy for Love, a finalist for the 2015 Kirkus Prize, and the bestselling Life Among Giants, which won a Maine Literary Award in 2012. An earlier collection, Big Bend, won the Flannery O’Connor and O. Henry prizes in 2000. His memoir in nature, Temple Stream, just released in a new paperback edition by Down East Books, won the Maine Literary Award in nonfiction 2005. He’s just been named a 2018 Civitella Ranieri Foundation fellow. Bill lives in Maine with his wife, Juliet Karelsen, who is a visual artist, and their daughter, Elysia Roorbach, an aspiring ballerina and full-time teen.
