I found your review of The Local News recently on She Reads and Reads during my (terrible) habit of Googling myself, and I was delighted by it. I’m listening to the Nick Cave song you mentioned as I type. What a wild and wonderful experience it sounds like you had. I could wish nothing more on a reader than to feel like she’s fully embodying the character that I wrote. I’m not sure if I can fully articulate how gratifying your experience was to read about.To see what she’s referring to, read my review. Thank you, Miriam, for brightening my day!
The Local News was just released in paperback last month and is a Random House Reader’s Circle selection, with an additional 14 pages of author Q&A, a Reading Group Guide and an author bio in the back. Miriam is also one of the featured authors in this month’s Random House Author Chats, which means that book groups can request her participation in their discussions.
