Praise for History of an Executioner

“From beginning to end, Clancy’s novella had me captivated with questions about love and duty, inheritance, community and work. I read this and thought about my father and factories and manual labor. Did I mention the gorgeous and restrained prose?”

— Daisy Hernández, judge of the 2019 Novella Prize and author of A Cup of Water Under My Bed
