Winner James Jones Literary Society Award for Best First Novel

“An extraordinarily impressive newcomer surveys the emotional riptide of obsession and its release in art...an intriguingly subtle treatise on sex and death and the shadow companion of love. First timer Schwartz is a talent to watch.”

—Kirkus Review (Starred)

“In a final violent act...we are reminded of the destructive forces of love, familial and romantic that drive even the sanest to the edge of madness. It is a testament to Schwartz’s gifts as a writer that the novel transcends clichés of violence and ultimately becomes a tale of survival, even in the most harrowing of circumstances.”
—Washington Post

“[Schwartz] gets the overheated atmosphere of the fringe art world just right in this erotic story of a grieving woman steering a dangerous course between sex and love, pain and pleasure, victimhood and survival.”
—Los Angeles Times

“Leslie Schwartz’s novel, Jumping the Green is a provocative debut...told with a heat-hazed elegance and subtle control.”
—Elle

“This harshly beautiful novel of sister-love and sick sex is a must-read.”
—Mademoiselle

“A superbly written debut.”
—Time Out

Jumping The Green is available on Amazon | Read an excerpt
