Marie Claire

While you were watching Sharknado, Steph Opitz decided that my novel Necessary Errors is “an endearing and thoughtful look at the expatriate experience” and said so in the August issue of Marie Claire (the write-up doesn’t seem to be online).

A review in Publishers Weekly of my novel

In the latest issue of Publishers Weekly, there’s another positive early review of my novel Necessary Errors. If you’re a subscriber you can search for it at their site, but otherwise the review is not online at all. Excerpt: “Crain reinvents the novel of the innocent in his well-wrought debut. . . . The novel is full of the kinds of conversations shared by intelligent, earnest young people everywhere; the parallels between their idealism and uncertainty and those of their adopted country are handled with great skill.”
