Michel Stone's debut novel The Iguana Tree, which Library Journal says "recalls the work of John Steinbeck," received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and an IPPY Award as one of the top novels published in 2012 by an independent press. The book was also named a spring 2012 "Okra Pick" from the Southern Independent Booksellers Association.  The Iguana Tree was recently named a finalist for Foreword Reviews Book of the Year in the multicultural fiction category.

The Iguana Tree was released in March 2012. Check out the video below if you missed the party!

"A timely and timeless tale...deeply compelling, imbued with characters who are as identifiable as they are foreign to readers who manage to grab hold of readers’ hearts and psyches and refuse to relinquish their grip long after their story has concluded. It is a notable first work of fiction that will leave readers clamoring for more from such a promising novelist. I highly recommend The Iguana Tree."
