FINALLY! (10/24/2013)

I've been anxiously awaiting the release of two books by two elusive and exciting authors, Wally Lamb and Donna Tartt.

Finally the day has arrived and both are available right now directly from this blog. Click on the Amazon Search Box in the Sidebar for instant gratification. You won't be sorry...

The author of the classic bestsellers The Secret History and The Little Friend returns with a brilliant, highly anticipated new novel.
It's only taken Donna Tartt ten years but it's worth the wait!

Here's a brief summary from Booklist:

The Goldfinch By Donna Tartt

It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Bewildered by his strange new home, disturbed by schoolmates who don’t know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.
The Goldfinch is a beautiful, stay-up-all-night-and-tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate.

We Are Water by Wally Lamb

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Hour I First Believed and I Know This Much is True, WE ARE WATER by Wally Lamb is a disquieting and uplifting novel about marriage,  a
family, and human resilience in the face of tragedy. said the following:

In middle age, Anna Oh-wife, mother, outsider artist-has shaken her family to its core. After twenty-seven years of marriage and three children, Anna has fallen in love with Vivica, the wealthy, cultured, confident Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her professional success.

Anna and Viveca plan to wed in the Oh family's hometown of Three Rivers in Connecticut, where gay marriage has recently been legalized. But the impending wedding provokes some very mixed reactions and opens a Pandora's Box of toxic secrets-dark and painful truths that have festered below the surface of the Ohs' lives.

WE ARE WATER is an intricate and layered portrait of marriage and family...a timely topic....

Reviews have been excellent...
