Staff favorite Garth Stein, the bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain, will join us to read and sign copies of his long-awaited new novel. In A Sudden Light, a boy trying to save his parents’ marriage uncovers a vast legacy of family secrets.
The premise of this book may sound like a downer, but as with all of
Hornby’s books, any darkness and sadness is infused with light, humor,
and insight. Hornby’s dry, British sense of humor never fails to make me
laugh, his characters are always fully developed and complex, and his
books are always odd yet heartwarming. This great book was just made
into a movie, so read it before the film hits the U.S.!
