Catapult Books: April News

Vexation Lullaby was selected by Boris Kachka of’s Vulture as one of “8 Books You Need to Read This April.”

This Spring, we’ve also published the novella Springtime by Michelle de Kretser, which earned a spot on Amazon’s Kindle Select “25 Exciting Books for this Week.” The Minneapolis Star Tribune says of Springtime: Each bite-sized chapter of this charming book is punctuated by a revelation.”

Margaret the First, which Literary Hub’s Jonny Diamond described as “a perfect dagger of a book,” was reviewed by Katharine Grant in The New York Times Book Review:

“The duchess herself would be delighted at her resurrection in Margaret the First. . . . Dutton expertly captures the pathos of a woman whose happiness is furrowed with the anxiety of underacknowledgment.”

Margaret the First has also received praise from The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, and Vanity Fair, among other publications.
