The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish front cover by Katya ApekinaThe Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish
"The Deeper the Water the Uglier the Fish is an engrossing debut—Apekina’s brilliant story of a family in crisis is a remarkable feat of empathy and insight, guided by unpredictable, propulsive storytelling. I was increasingly and helplessly hooked. I can’t believe this remarkable tour de force is a first novel."
J. Ryan Stradal, author of the New York Times Bestseller Kitchens of the Great Midwest
