Praise for The Waterhouse

“In The Waterhouse, Jubal Tiner traces the intersecting fate of three boyhood friends as they navigate the world of masculinity and its discontents. These are stories bristling with a fierce wisdom, masterfully written, and emotionally fearless. Tiner is a writer to watch.” 

— Steve Almond, author of God Bless America and My Life in Heavy Metal

“Names are important in The Waterhouse and so are the frequent nicknames that attach additional significance to their owners, but what is most crucial is the perception of each principle character, and that vital task is handled with distinction through Jubal Tiner’s command of multiple points of view. The characters are often frustrated and even more often afraid, yet they persist and even find a measure of redemption, able, as one of them says, as he lifts his young son toward the moon, to ‘pilot the capsule.’” 

— Gary Fincke, author of Sorry I Worried You, winner of the Flannery O’Connor Award

“With its interrelated characters, The Waterhouse gives the reader both the pleasure of individual short stories as well as the wider arc of a novel. Tiner is a gifted writer, and he expertly plumbs the depths of his characters’ troubled souls.” 

— Ron Rash, author of Serena and The Cove
