Best books of 2017

I'm finally back at my writing desk, with the dust of 38 cities on my suitcase, and a bit of glitter in my hair.

I'm staring at the outline and early pages of a new book. So weird to be sitting down, going back to Storyland.

But, before I disappear, I'm delighted to share that Library Journal named LOVE AND OTHER CONSOLATION PRIZES as one of their best historical fictions novels of the year. Also on the list was LILI DE JONG by Janet Benton, which I loved and have raved about. But, my favorite book of the year by far was LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE by Celeste Ng.

If you can buy two books, I hope one of them is mine, but if you had to choose only one, I'd say buy Celeste's. I'm still basking in the strenuous, maddening, heart-rending, infuriating afterglow of that story. 

In fact, next March I'll be back at the Tucson Festival of Books, sharing the stage with Celeste and Tom Perrotta. I can't wait.

Ah, technology. I can now order a pizza online, find old grade school classmates, and chat with YOU via BookMovement.com. Okay, not just you, but you and other book lovers, plus author M.J. Rose. We'll be talking about historical fiction, writing tips, book club suggestions, and anything else that comes to mind.
