"Waiting On" Wednesday: The After Party

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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

The After Party

By Anton DiSclafani

Publication Date: May 17

From Amazon:

Joan Fortier is the epitome of Texas glamour and the center of the 1950s Houston social scene. Tall, blonde, beautiful, and strong, she dominates the room and the gossip columns. Every man who sees her seems to want her; every woman just wants to be her. But this is a highly ordered world of garden clubs and debutante balls. The money may flow as freely as the oil, but the freedom and power all belong to the men. What happens when a woman of indecorous appetites and desires like Joan wants more? What does it do to her best friend? Devoted to Joan since childhood, Cece Buchanan is either her chaperone or her partner in crime, depending on whom you ask. But as Joan’s radical behavior escalates, Cece’s perspective shifts—forcing one provocative choice to appear the only one there is.


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Miranda said...

I've never heard of this book, I'll have to check it out! :)

Laura said...

Love the cover, but the synopsis doesn't sound like something I'd read. I do hope you will enjoy it though when you have the chance.

The Hermit Librarian said...

Your choice sounds like it would be hit or miss for me. It could be done really well, but the synopsis is on the border. I do like reading about the 50's, so I bet I'd give this a shot. :)

My post is over at The Hermit Librarian. Please take a look if you have the time.
