About this audiobook

A "novel in stories" by Jen Knox, winner of the Prize Americana for Prose.

"Set in Ohio and told from the point of view of a struggling single mother and her youngest daughter, Resolutions is a beautifully rendered, poignant, and earnest look at the modern American family. Jen Knox illustrates what we are capable of as daughters, sons, mothers, grandchildren, friends, and siblings—the roles we play, what we do to each other, what we owe each other, and how we carry on when we fail spectacularly. At the heart of this book is a fierce, loving voice that shines through in characters so real you ache for them. Knox has written an unforgettable account of a traumatized working-class family and how they continue to survive and love despite perpetual hardship." –Beth Gilstrap, I Am Barbarella: Stories  and Deadheading & Other Stories

“So thoroughly immersive in prose and purpose. Like watching a series of plays on the most intimate of stages. Yet Jen Knox doesn’t rely on the trappings of ‘pretty’ writing. A story is only as good as its characters, and she’s created a vibrant, grounded world full of life and substance. A marvelously effective work—and an author to watch.” – Matt Joseph Misetich, Book Pipeline

"Never predictable but always from the heart, Jen Knox's Resolutions will leave you feeling for her characters long after you've turned the last page."– Tanya Breshears, Curious Fictions
