I've published two novels and two collections of short fiction and, while the rest of life happens, am working on a new one of each. About my last novel, Waiting for Rescue (2009): "In prose alternately lyrical and pragmatic, Lucy Honig evokes above all the chaotic sense of vertigo that comes from suddenly feeling a shrinking Earth spin uncontrollably under our feet." Boston Globe. About The Truly Needy: “Lucy Honig’s work possesses a startling, unnerving moral energy; it is work that tells us a good deal about who we are—work that addresses darker moments, and yet, does so without moralistic bombast—rather, with a talented writer’s illuminating , disarming irony.”—Robert Coles "Honig's characters never degenerate into types or sink into self-pity, but soldier on, displaying courage in untenable situations and compassion where we might least expect to find it." New York Times.
