Claudia Putnam

Her novella, Seconds, came out in July 2023 from Neutral Zones Press. Novelist Robin Black has said: “There is a wealth of brave wisdom in this novella. Putnam takes a social encounter and peels back its layers-through time, ancient longings, lingering dishonesties-until reaching unsettling but crucial insights. I love when a short book takes on the truly big issues of human experience, and Putnam’s does so triumphantly here.”
