“Still Points is a novel of spectacular, untarnished beauty. A lovely, lyrical book that is both profound and honest, entertaining and real. Inspired by a true story, Swanson’s literary debut is heartfelt, heartbreaking, and utterly heart-filling.”Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places
“Barry Swanson’s immersive debut is at once a tender romance, an insightful coming-of-age story, and an unflinching look at the realities of war. Swanson grabs the reader from the first page and keeps them in his thrall as he brings the characters and settings to vivid life. Both uplifting and heartbreaking, Still Points is a book you won’t soon forget.”Kathleen Barber, author of Truth Be Told (now an Apple TV+ series) and Follow Me
