Missed posting about this yesterday, on the actual release day. But it’s not too late to grab up this brand new novel from Rebecca Makkai.
Remember her from when I reviewed The Borrower and The Hundred-Year House? Makkai is back with a new novel, following her short story collection Music for Wartime. I’ve only read a chapter of this new book so far, but it’s grabbed me like Makkai’s writing always does.
And a fun fact…I’ll be seeing her at a reading at the Tattered Cover tonight. And I’ll be bringing all my books for her to sign (along with this new one that I ordered special for tonight). Maybe she’ll be in a city near you on her tour. You can find out here.
