Wonderfully Bazaar

From a round-up of “the best books to read in 2015” in the UK edition of Harper’s Bazaar comes this lovely bit of praise from novelist, editor, and book critic Sam Baker:

“…my favourite novel of the year so far is Judith Claire Mitchell’s A Reunion of Ghosts. Set as the millennium approaches, this mordantly funny story of the Alter sisters – Lady, Vee and Delph – is a literary mash-up of The Virgin Suicides and Grey Gardens. I wouldn’t be surprised if Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola are slugging it out for the film rights already.”

An exciting fantasy, to be sure. I’m already imagining the casting:  Jason Schwartzman and Owen and Luke Wilson as the Alter Sisters, Bill Murray as Albert Einstein…
