This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance (CD-Audio)
Jonathan Evison gets better with each new book. ”I guess you could say This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! is a coming of old age story,” he says of his latest. We become acquainted with the main character Harriet in bits and pieces snipped from the pages of her life, beginning in early childhood and continuing to the age of 78. Like a jigsaw puzzle, the pieces begin to fit together into a cohesive picture. It's brilliant, and I would recommend it to just about any reader.— Jackie Blem, who reads like a house of fire and whose recommendations are as good as gold.
