Following her wonderfully received first novel, Another Place You've Never Been, called "mesmerizing," "powerful," and "gorgeous," by critics all over the country, Rebecca Kauffman returns with Mikey Callahan, a thirty-year-old who is suffering from the clouded vision of macular degeneration. He struggles to establish human connections--even his emotional life is a blur.

As the novel begins, he is reconnecting with "The Gunners," his group of childhood friends, after one of their members has committed suicide. Sally had distanced herself from all of them before ending her life, and she died harboring secrets about the group and its individuals. Mikey especially needs to confront dark secrets about his own past and his father. How much of this darkness accounts for the emotional stupor Mikey is suffering from as he reaches his maturity? And can The Gunners, prompted by Sally's death, find their way to a new day? The core of this adventure, made by Mikey, Alice, Lynn, Jimmy, and Sam, becomes a search for the core of truth, friendship, and forgiveness.

A quietly startling, beautiful book, The Gunners engages us with vividly unforgettable characters, and advances Rebecca Kauffman's place as one of the most important young writers of her generation.

Insightful and endearing, this is a lovely look at friendship and human fragility.
Compassionate and unexpectedly funny
Kauffman so convincingly renders the affection between them that you accept each character's foibles as readily as they do one another's ... There's so much generosity and spirit and humour
Beautifully wrought ... Engrossing ... Kauffman is interested in the muddiness of love-how it can be selfish and desperate, even cruel
I recommend you read every single thing Rebecca Kauffman writes?start with this beautiful novel, and start now
Perceptive, funny, and endearing ... Reminiscent of The Big Chill and St. Elmo's Fire, this remarkable novel is just as satisfying
Praise for Another Place You've Never Been:"Kauffman's compassion for her lonely characters is evident..."
Praise for Another Place You've Never Been:"A fascinating portrait of a modern, tragic heroine, and a lens into our own darkest, most hopeful places."
Praise for Another Place You've Never Been: "An accomplished debut - at times emotionally gritty but always emotionally true."
