About the authors:
Peter Clines, Ex-Heroes: Peter Clines has written a "superheroes vs. zombies" novel that is original, fun, and incredibly well-told. Much like Ready Player One, this is a novel that goes far beyond the genre into which it was published, and it can be enjoyed by many different types of readers. The heroes in this book are real people with real problems of loss, relationships and fear.
Jonathan Evison, The revised fundamentals of caregiving: Down on his luck, Benjamin Benjamin takes a class to learn how to be a caregiver, and finds a job caring for Trev, a 19 year old with muscular dystrophy. Their relationship, and the road trip that they take together, is at the center of the novel, which is by turns tragic and funny.
Ru Freeman, On Sal Mal Lane: This is a lush, brilliant novel of childhood in Sri Lanka in the time just before the outbreak of the 26-year Sri Lankan civil war. Ru is the author of the novel, A disobedient girl.
Caroline Leavitt, Is this tomorrow: In this, Leavitt's tenth novel, a 12 year-old boy goes missing from a Boston suburb, and this affects an entire community. It is at once a mystery, a family story, and a novel of 1950s suburbia. Leavitt is author of the novel, Pictures of you.
Rhonda Riley, The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope: An unconventional and passionately romantic love story that is as breathtaking and wondrous as The Time Traveler's Wife. During World War II, Evelyn Roe is sent to manage the family farm in rural North Carolina, where she finds what she takes to be a badly burned soldier on their property. It quickly becomes clear he is not a man . . . and not normal.
Jan-Philipp Sendker, The art of hearing heartbeats: After a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be, until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago, to a Burmese woman they have never heard of.
Maggie Shipstead, Seating Arrangements: A satirical novel about a pre-wedding weekend and all the craziness that weddings bring out in friends and family members, especially when that family is an upper-class old-money New England clan.
