Assistant Professor of Writing Eleanor Henderson's debut novel, Ten Thousand Saints, has been named as one of the ten best books of 2011 by the New York Times.

The novel, published in June, received wide critical praise, including on the cover of the New York Times Book Review, in which reviewer Stacey D’Erasmo noted that Henderson, “writes the hell out of every moment, every scene, every perspective, every fleeting impression, every impulse and desire and bit of emotional detritus. She is never ironic or underwhelmed; her preferred mode is fierce, devoted, and elegiac.”

“Ten Thousand Saints” was listed by as one of the “Best Books of the Month” for June and included on the recommended summer reading lists of the “Los Angeles Times” and “New York Daily News.” NPR, “O, the Oprah Magazine,” “Publishers Weekly,” and “Library Journal” were among the others weighing in with positive reviews for the book, which was released by Ecco Press on June 7.
