Preorder now! Us Fools by Nora Lange

The debut novel from Disquiet alum Nora Lange arrives in September 2024 from Two Dollar Radio! You can preorder it here.

“Us Fools is a boisterous, irreverent, and moving novel about two sisters growing up in an America that doesn’t much care for them or their midwestern farming family. With comic tenderness and with an unforgettable, ferocious voice, Nora Lange paints a remarkable portrait of connection and alienation, of love and heartbreak, and all points in between.” —Edan Lepucki
