Gotta be highly autobiographic and sounds so revealing. Pre-ordered and looking forward to the release in August.

Thanks, Ellen!
I'm sooo excited about this one. Just emailed the publisher (Knopf, not Nan Talese as listed at amazon) for a review copy and requested an interview. "Prince of Tides" is right up there on my all-time favorite list ... didn't care much for the movie, but loved the book. 8)

I think you will really like this one, Brad.
Very much so!
I really enjoyed it, it gave me a lot of lessons in working with people instead of simple taking over and doing what I think is best

Just read "Saints in Limbo" by River Jordan (yes, that's her real name).

Interviewed her today and had the best visit. This is just her third book, but she's a rising star.

Loved the story of a widow so overcome with grief that she won't leave her front porch unless tethered to one of several brightly colored pieces of yarn. As long as she has the yarn in her hand, she's good, but she won't make one step further.

Then, a man appears and gives her a rock with magical qualities.

It might sound a bit odd, but it really is one of the best books I've read this year.

Just finished Bulls Island by Dorthea Benton Frank and now in search of something else to read. I think a trip to the used book store is in order today.

Sounds intriguing!!! May have to pick this one up for summers at the pool with the grandkeets.

Currently finishing up "Hollywood Crows" by Wambaugh. Another fun cop novel. Next up is "A Thousand White Women" recommended by my newly-found sister-in-law.

Flags of Our Fathers, Bradley.
Started reading this last night and then this morning transported a patient who fought in the battle on Iwo Jima. Too bizzare!

The characters have stayed with me for several weeks ... and after visiting with the author, I hope more people find the book. It is so well done. Carefully crafted. I felt I was "there" in the story.
