Dear Ones —
Here is a link to the wonderful review of "The Signature of All Things" that will run on the cover of the New York Times Book Review this Sunday, written by Barbara ("The Poisonwood Bible") Kingsolver.
I am so incredibly honored. She's been a hero of mine for many years. Actually, I am staggered.
But I must warn you before you open this link:
SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT!
YOU WILL FIND OUT STUFF ABOUT SURPRISES IN THE NOVEL IF YOU READ THIS ENTIRE REVIEW!!!
So…up to you! Read at your own risk.
But in the meanwhile, I can safely share this generous excerpt:
“Gilbert has established herself as a straight-up storyteller who dares us into adventures of worldly discovery, and this novel stands as a winning next act. The Signature of All Things is a bracing homage to the many natures of genius and the inevitable progress of ideas, in a world that reveals its best truths to uncommonly patient minds.”
— The New York Times Book Review, Barbara Kingsolver
Thank you, Ms. Kingsolver. I am deeply honored.
ONLY FOUR MORE DAYS, GUYS!
