NDR congratulates Constance Squires, whose debut novel Along the Watchtower was published in July 2011 by Riverhead Books, a division of Penguin Group. Squires won the 2007 Matt Clark Prize for her short story “Grand Mal,” which appeared in the Summer 2007 issue of NDR, Volume 24, Number 2. The characters from this story–and a portion of the story itself–appear in Along the Watchtower.

NDR is thrilled to hear about the success of a past contributor. To learn more about Constance and her book, please visit her website at http://constancesquires.com/. Along the Watchtower is available for purchase at major online booksellers.
