"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Hour I First Believed

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Hour I First Believed
By Wally Lamb
Publication Date: November 11

From The New York Times:

"The novel begins with a married couple moving to Littleton, Colo., in 1999 to take jobs at Columbine High School, where the wife ends up cowering in the library the day two students go on a shooting rampage. In the aftermath the couple moves to the husband’s family farm in Connecticut. She tries to recover, while the husband stumbles on a series of family secrets."

Lamb's latest release comes 10 years after the wildly bestselling She's Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True. At 700+ pages, you'll want to set aside a good chunk of time to delve into what is sure to be one of the best books this fall.

Thanks to Gustav, I missed this last event. I am hoping Ike won't stand in the way of future Wednesdays.
