On Kaitlin’s forthcoming novel:
“Puccio has a captivating, though-provoking voice that echoes Atwood and Burgess. The characters are lost souls in a sharply created landscape that feels familiar, haunted and real. The flowing perspectives holds up both mirrors and windows to the characters and, for me, the reader.”
– David Dastmalchian, Actor: Ant-Man, The Dark Knight, Blade Runner 2049
