good junk email day
One of my favorite authors (maybe my favorite), Barbara Kingsolver, has not only written a new novel, but she will be here to talk to me (and others I suppose), pimp her book, and autograph it on November 12th!!!!!!!!!!!
The email said:
In The Lacuna, her first novel in nine years, Barbara Kingsolver, the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of The Poisonwood Bible and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life, tells the story of Harrison William Shepherd, a man caught between two worlds -- an unforgettable protagonist whose search for identity will take readers to the heart of the twentieth century's most tumultuous events.
Barbara Kingsolver's books of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction include the novels The Bean Trees and Animal Dreams. Translated into nineteen languages, her work has won a devoted worldwide readership and many awards, including the National Humanities Medal. She lives with her family on a farm in southwestern Virginia.
Here are the books I have that I've read. Each one is something special.
Who wants to go with?
