About the Author
JoeAnn Hart is the author of Highwire Act & Other Tales of Survival, a collection of short fiction (Black Lawrence Press, 2023), Stamford ' 76: A True Story of Murder, Corruption, Race, and Feminism in the 1970s (University of Iowa Press, April, 2019), a crime memoir that weaves together the personal and public threads of a friend's 1976 bow-and-arrow death. Her novels are Float (Ashland Creek Press, 2013) a dark comedy about plastics in the ocean, and Addled (Little, Brown, 2007) a social satire that intertwines animal rights with the politics of food. She lives in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
"Hart does an admirable job of developing memorable flawed characters and letting them loose . . ." --Publishers Weekly
"JoeAnn Hart is an accomplished writer, a writer with a mastery of the subtle, funny detail, a well-developed voice and stories to tell." --Susan Cheever
"An ambitious and fast-paced story of wildfire and pandemic and flood told through the eyes of characters living on the margins of our communities and the natural world. Entertaining, sobering, and thought-provoking, Arroyo Circle grabbed me from the first pages. I loved it." --Ellen Meeropol, author of The Lost Women of Azalea Court
"JoeAnn Hart has achieved the impossible: a beautifully written, page-turner of a novel about the climate crisis. Arroyo Circle, and its richly drawn characters, is urgent, impassioned and revelatory. If the world around us is burning, Hart is the poet/naturalist who will guide us through the flames." --Laura Harrington, author of A Catalog of Birds
"Against the backdrop of Colorado's smoke-filled summer skies, JoeAnn Hart brings together an unforgettable cast of characters, drawn together by loss and by living on the edges of a society ravaged by climate change and Covid. Yet in a world where lives change in an instant, what prevails in this remarkable and inventive novel is compassion, hope, and the wonders of nature. At once haunting and witty, vivid and ethereal, Arroyo Circle is a beautifully written ode to our changing world." --Midge Raymond, author of Floreana and My Last Continent
