Elle Magazine has chosen my memoir “The Lost Night” for its online books forum for the month of August:
” [U]nfolds with the urgency of a thriller, for both obvious reasons?the central fact of Howard’s life is her father’s murder when she was nine?but also because of the author’s clear-sighted, propulsive prose . . . What begins as a quest for justice winds up a complex, compulsively readable mediation on the nature of reconciliation, whether it is with your family, your past, or yourself.”
The book is in good company with Kim Addonizio’s “Little Beauties” and Aimee Bender’s “Willfull Creatures.” Check out the full write-up here. And look for the book to be onsale in stores by next Tuesday.
