#Circe is on @jeopardy!!
From @annnapolitano, whose novel #DearEdward is forthcoming from #DialPress @randomhouse in 2020!
Copy edits on my novel, Dear Edward, are due today. Copy editors are amazing, and I love editing, but I’m very sad that I can’t keep writing this novel, and living inside its world, forever.
So thrilled to see this brilliant and deeply moving new book by one of our heroes Malala Yousafzai, written with the help of our brilliant author @lizdarcangelo, debuting on the @nytimes bestseller list at #5. We Are Displaced could not be more relevant to this moment, but this book also tells universal stories of despair and hope, fear and resilience. As the reviewer Fernanda Santos wrote in her rave review in the @nytbooks: “It is a stirring and timely book that strips the political baggage from the words ‘migrant’ and ‘refugee,’ telling the deeply personal stories of displacement and disruption that were lived by Yousafzai and nine other girls.” ***
We can’t wait to share this one with all the young readers in our lives. Congratulations to @malala, @lizdarcangelo, @farrinj, and @littlebrownyoungreaders and to everyone else involved in its publication.
We are swooning over this gorgeous painting of a woman reading The Paris Wife by @inslee. (Awesome caption, too: “Named her Hadley. Seemed appropriate.” 💪). Thank you for alerting us to this wonderful artist, @mishacooperdesign! @paula_mclain #TheParisWife
Happy happy pub day to @daniwriter, who launched her exquisite memoir INHERITANCE before a standing room crowd in New York. As Ruth Franklin wrote in her review in the @nytimes today: “Shapiro’s account is beautifully written and deeply moving — it brought me to tears more than once.”
Happy happy pub day to @verynatalieanderson and @penguinteen for LET’S GO SWIMMING ON DOOMSDAY! In a starred review, Booklist says “Storytelling is a feat of informed imagination, and [Anderson’s] efforts breathe ferocious life into a story that needs to be told.”
Happy Paperback Pub day to #LoveAndRuin, the latest New York Times Bestseller by @paula_mclain about the incomparable Martha Gellhorn (pictured here).
