V.I.B. (very impressive book) Picks

Every now and then we encounter a new book that we’re so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we've created a special tag to distinguish it from the rest: TC V.I.B. (very impressive book)! That means it’s a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books. 

 

 

Our latest selection is: 

Did You Ever Have a Family
by Bill Clegg
($26.00 Scout Press)

A page turning tale of devastating loss, Did You Ever Have a Family opens with a early dawn house explosion on the morning of a wedding. June, the mother of the bride, watches in horror as her farmhouse is consumed by fire; trapped inside are her daughter, the groom-to-be, her ex-husband and her much younger lover. Told by multiple voices, the novel goes deeply into the lives, loves and losses of characters impacted by this tragedy. Bill Clegg honors the strengths and foibles of the human condition and does so with a gifted pen and voice new to fiction. Longlisted for the Booker, a prize for any reader. --Cathy Langer, Tattered Cover Lead Buyer
