|Thalia Book Club: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah|
The author of the critically acclaimed Half of a Yellow Sun and Purple Hibiscus presents her newest novel Americanah, a story of love and race centered around a young man and woman from Nigeria facing challenges in the countries they come to call home.
|Thalia Book Club: Colum McCann TransAtlantic|
National Book Award-winning novelist Colum McCann talks with John Wray (Lowboy) about his spellbinding new novel (to be released June 4), a gripping historical fiction spanning 150 years, from 1845 to the present, and weaving the tales of four generations of women with moments in the lives of Frederick Douglass, early British aviators Jack Alcock and Teddy Brown, and former senator George Mitchell.
|Thalia Book Club: Claire Messud The Woman Upstairs |
The New York Times best-selling author of the literary page-turner The Emperor's Children discusses her richly drawn new novel: the riveting compulsively readable confession of a 37-year-old elementary school teacher in Cambridge, Mass, drawn into the complex world of her new neighbors -- a Lebanese scholar and professor of Ethical History, his glamourous Italian artist wife and their son -- who move in and change her life in ways she never expected.
"An uncanny blend of maturity and mirth. Somehow, Messud can stand in that chilly wind blowing on us all and laugh".- (on The Emperor's Children) The Washington Post
|Neil Gaiman The Ocean at the End of the Lane |
The superstar author makes a stop on his last official book tour to read from and discuss his first adult novel in eight years.
From one of the world's most beloved storytellers--#1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman--comes his first adult novel in eight years. Wondrous and imaginative, and at times deeply scary, The Ocean at the End of the Lane captures the very essence of childhood fear and uncertainty. In a clash of memory and reality, it is a pitched fever dream of a novel, and could very well be Gaiman's most accomplished work to date.
