Another great day of book releases! I already downloaded two new ones that I’ve been seeing on blogs.
American Dirt, by Jeanine Cummins
“This book is not simply the great American novel; it’s the great novel of las Americas. It’s the great world novel! This is the international story of our times. Masterful.”
After writing about my download of American Dirt, I was tuned into CBS News when Oprah announced the novel as her new Book Club Pick. Yay!
And then there is Deep State, by Chris Hauty
“Deep State is a propulsive, page-turning, compelling, fragmentation grenade of a debut thriller.” —C.J. Box, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wolf Pack and The Bitterroots
“The plot…rings eerily true…will keep you turning the pages well into the night.” —Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL and acclaimed author of The Terminal List and True Believer
Yesterday, a package came from Amazon with the hardcover version:
The Guest Book, by Sarah Blake – this one has been out for a while, but I wanted to wait a bit…
An exquisitely written, poignant family saga that illuminates the great divide, the gulf that separates the rich and poor, black and white, Protestant and Jew. Spanning three generations, The Guest Book deftly examines the life and legacy of one unforgettable family as they navigate the evolving social and political landscape from Crockett’s Island, their family retreat off the coast of Maine. Blake masterfully lays bare the memories and mistakes each generation makes while coming to terms with what it means to inherit the past.
So…that starts off my day. I am writing this at 3:33 in the morning! What does your day look like?
