Winner of the New England Book Festival Fiction Award

"A stellar fiction newcomer." —NPR "Fresh Air”

"The Rest of Us proves to be a compelling, resonant, richly nuanced, and sometimes heartbreaking portrait of cross-generational love and the meaning of art...[it's] beautifully paced and totally engrossing." —Boston Globe

"Jessica Lott's debut surges with life...both its central love story and its account of an artistic coming of age glow with verisimilitude. From the start it's evident that Lott has a mordantly acute comic sensibility. It turns out that she can also write with tenderness and restraint about life's inevitable tragic turns." —Chicago Tribune

"Lott’s talent for poetic language, her realistic depiction of the plight of the female artist, and the difficulty of female friendships prove her to be a promising new voice in fiction." —The Daily Beast, “Hot Reads”

THE REST OF US (Simon and Schuster)

Winner of the Low Fidelity Press Novella Award

"Jessica Lott writes with a distinct style that is full of ease and humor…an important debut.” —Ha Jin, author of Waiting and War Trash

"Osin, protagonist of her novella ... is prickly, growly, annoying, vulnerable, flawed, offensive, and sympathetic, [part of] a world of complex characters who are struggling, in real ways, to connect. This is a novella to relax into—for it weaves its magic underground, and as you are reading, you find yourself growing attached to this real and bumpy group of people." —Aimee Bender, author of The Girl in the Flammable Skirt
