It’s summertime and the livin’ looks easy, but this is actually when I’m busy catching up on all the research and writing I couldn’t get to during the academic year. Still, I get to catch up on the back deck with Josie.
This summer I’m also working on the final edits of my new novel, A Reunion of Ghosts. It will be released by Harper in North America and by 4th Estate in the U.K. on March 24, 2015. Both publishers are imprints of HarperCollins. I suspect there will be a gala A Reunion of Ghosts book tour following its release. As soon as I know them, dates and details will appear on my Events page.
Summer is also a great time to do a little non-required reading. Did you know in addition to calling it “a bravura performance,” the New York Times ballyhooed my first novel, The Last Day of the War, as “that greatest of oxymorons, the intelligent beach book”? Well, they did; they ballyhooed. The greatest of oxymorons. Greater than plastic glass! Greater than military music! My point is that if you’re headed to an intelligent beach, you might consider taking a copy of Last Day with you. And if your entire book club is heading to the beach, give me a shout. I’d love to come too.
