BOOK OF THE DAY:
"Life After Life", by Jill McCorkle.
Dear Everyone —
Last night I went to hear the luminous Jill McCorkle read from her new novel, "Life After Life". I've been a fan of Jill's for a long while, and have always wanted to meet her, and — as this is her first novel in 17 years — now seemed the moment! She is absolutely great. It's so wonderful to meet someone you have always admired, only to discover that they are even lovelier in person than you had hoped. I wish you could all have been there for the reading…she was so completely charming and marvelous.
Anyhow, I recommend this novel to anyone looking for a beautiful, heartfelt, funny, warm and smart story. "Life after Life," people. It's a rare delight.
