Disparate Pathos

by Meg Tuite


With tooth and nail, Meg Tuite scrapes not under the skin, but under the bone to find the marrow of purpose in the lives of her characters. Her unique voice and style redefine what it means to be a woman, and to be a writer.


Here's what's being said about Disparate Pathos:

“Her use of language always serves the purpose of illuminating the truth of our complicated lives. She never shies away from violence, love, insanity, disappointment nor chaos.”

— Paula Bomer, author of Baby & Other Stories


“The beauty of her writing is vast, but often it is those startling details that pull you in like a magnet, because even if something is truly improbable in the world that those of us in the flesh and blood inhabit, on the page she will make you believe. And you will never look back.”

— Michelle Reale, author of If All They Had Were Their Bodies


“Meg Tuite is all lungs and fists and brawl. In short, Meg tells her stories with sleeves rolled up. Go ahead and try her.”



“Tuite knows how to dig deep and scrape out the darkness . . .”

— Susan Tepper, author of From the Umberplatzen


“Meg Tuite is . . . is completely and utterly Tuite.”

— Jen Knox, author of Musical Chairs and To Begin Again


“Sly, sharp, and utterly nourishing.”

— Kristine Ong Muslim, author of We Bury the Landscape
