Here's what reviewers said about Little Island:
"Little Island is a hidden gem, a diamond in the rough, with all the potential to top the bestseller lists."
"This is the perfect book for those who love Jodi Picoult, Kristin Hannah and Elin Hilderbrand."
My next appearance will be at Bookstock in Woodstock, Vermont on July 25 at 2pm at the Woodstock Inn. I am truly honored to be participating in this annual event, which this year features such remarkable poets and authors as Billy Collins, Charlies Simic, and Anita Diamant.
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, by Karen Joy Fowler. Here's what Khaled Hosseini said about it: "I thought this was a gripping, big-hearted book . . . through the tender voice of her protagonist, Fowler has a lot to say about family, memory, language, science, and indeed the question of what constitutes a human being."
Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials that Shape Our Man-Made World, by Mark Miodownik. "An eye-opening adventure deep inside the everyday materials that surround us, packed with surprising stories and fascinating science." Read my review on the New York Journal of Books.
This book would make a great Father's Day gift!

Praise for Little Island
“Acutely rendered details of a beloved natural landscape and
[a] wise understanding of complex human hearts. The tale is
touched with heartbreak but leavened with humor.”
— Reeve Lindbergh, author of Under a Wing and Forward From Here
