Goodnight Stranger cover art, a house on stilts sits over the water at the end of a dock.Miciah Bay Gault visits Gibson's Bookstore to present her debut of literary suspense, Goodnight Stranger, which follows one young woman caught between her desire for the future and the tragedy of her past, and the love she has for her brother and the stranger who drives them apart, all set in a gorgeously atmospheric fictional Cape Cod island town.

George Saunders writes of the book: “Somewhere the ghosts of Shirley Jackson and the Henry James of The Turn of the Screw are smiling, because a wildly talented young writer has joined their lineage. What a taut, keenly intelligent, and provocative debut Goodnight Stranger is. Deeply compelling and enjoyable, suffused with a genuinely thrilling new mode of literary energy." 

About the author: Miciah Bay Gault grew up on Sanibel Island, Cape Cod, and other beautiful places. A graduate of the Syracuse MFA program, she now teaches in the Writing and Publishing MFA program at Vermont College of Fine Arts and is the coordinator of the Vermont Book Award.
