Hush was one of two runners-up for the 2011 Sundress chapbook contest.
“Jan LaPerle’s strange tales venture deeper than one might expect. There are plenty of laughs–a woman pregnant with a dishwasher? a man who buys a new head each year?–yet beneath the surface humor is a swift current of love, home, and the need for human connection. Escape is impossible once you’re caught in Hush. But then again, you won’t want to.”
