Guest Posting at Great New Books: Leaving Lucy Pear

Great New Books logoGreat New Books (GNB) is a website dedicated to spreading the word about favorite books and must-reads. With a team of 10 bloggers, GNB posts a book recommendation once a week on fiction or nonfiction, memoir, young adult, and more–a diverse range of reading guaranteed to grow your t0-be-read pile.

Cover image: Leaving Lucy PearThis week, I’m honored to be one of their guest bloggers, where I spotlight one of my recent faves: Anna Solomon’s newest novel, Leaving Lucy Pear:

Several years ago I fell in love with Anna Solomon’s first novel, The Little Bride, so it took hardly any press on the news of her second, Leaving Lucy Pear, to convince me to run out and grab it. In both books, Solomon weaves vivid imagery with a deep study of characters, so that the events of one person’s story are molded by the decisions of another.

And many thanks to Jennifer Lyn King and the rest of the GNB team for the invitation to post!
