According to Twitter and Facebook Laura Lippman Is A Big Deal


After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman.  I follow a few writers on Twitter and Facebook and several of them have praised Lippman and were excited to get this novel.  Lippman has not updated her author photo in a while.

Cold Storage Alaska by John Straley.Straley's photo looks like a cropped snapshot.  Straley was the writer Laureate of Alaska in 2006.  Page 99 says, "Bob Gleason, using a walker, pushed his way up to Miles and jutted out a wobbly hand."  I have not heard the following video clip but it was posted 47 minutes ago and I'm embedding the sucker!

My Name is Resolute by Nancy E. Turner.  Your name is "resolute"?  What are you, a boat?  "A woman struggling to find herself during the tumultuous years preceding the American Revolution."

North of Boston by Elisabeth Elo.  The cover photo tells me, "Woman stands on old dock watching the fishing ships come in as she pines for her missing fisherman husband."  The inside cover says, "Fisherwoman is on boat that sinks, cares for boat captain's child and starts to wonder if sinking was an accident."


Elysium starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster.  Matt Damon pretends to live in the future.  Jodie Foster pretends to live in the future. They both pretend to live in the future.
