John Grisham - GRAY MOUNTAIN - On Sale Now

 

John Grisham's new novel, Gray Mountain, is now on our shelves as a signed first edition. Gray Mountain is set in the shadow of the recent financial crisis with a corporate lawyer, Samantha Kofer, at its center - Grisham's first female protagonist since The Pelican Brief.  After losing her big-wig job in New York City, Samantha is cast off to small-town Appalachia and finds herself wrapped up in Big Coal. Grisham's new legal thriller, deemed "angry and important," dives deep into Big Coal and promises to enlighten the reader while delivering an imaginative and enthralling story. The Washington Post summarized, "This novel... shows Grisham's work - always superior entertainment - evolving into something more serious, more powerful, more worthy of his exceptional talent." 

Richard Flanagan (NARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP NORTH) wins Man Booker Prize

 
     Congratulations to Richard Flanagan and The Narrow Road to the Deep North upon winning the Man Booker Prize today! The author is a long time favorite to the booksellers at Square Books and to a great many readers and friends he has made on the five visits from his native Tasmania to this community, most recently on September 16 this year, when he was proclaimed an honorary citizen of Oxford.    
     Congratulations to Knopf, his publisher, as well as to Grove Atlantic -- Morgan Entrekin in particular -- who published his first five books in the U.S., including the exquisite edition of Gould's Book of Fish.     Flanagan fans around the world will be toasting him tonight, including a happy crowd upstairs at City Grocery.
