Added SO many books in today‘s @nytimesbooks Summer Reading Issue to my TBR pile. Also? So grateful for the review of THE LIONESS: “Bohjalian weaves life stories with such deftness…I was breathlessly following these people like the hyenas.”

Happy Saturday. This is the first paragraph of my forthcoming novel. THE LIONESS roars May 10!

“Oh, I can‘t speak for the dead. And I won‘t speak for the missing. I can only tell you what I think happened. Others—the dead and the missing—would probably have their own versions. Blame, I can tell you firsthand, is every bit as subjective as truth.”

Ernest Hemingway on Writing | Larry W. Phillips
post image

I‘ve been haunted the last month by Ken Burns‘s remarkable documentary on Ernest Hemingway. This was one of the first books I ever bought “on writing” and — for all of Hemingway‘s demons and flaws as a human being — I would not be the writer I am today without it.

marleed I often wish I would have documented for myself how often Earnest Hemingway is mentioned (sometimes even an unexpected supporting character) in books I‘ve read. I‘m sure it‘s more than any other IRL figure and every time makes me stop to consider his influence on writers - and really society. 1y

It was on this weekend in 1944 that the Allies liberated Rome. I chronicled the war in Italy in my 2013 love story — that, yes, also has a serial killer — THE LIGHT IN THE RUINS. Incidentally, I am always honored when readers have a line from one of my novels tattooed on to them. Thank you.

BookishMarginalia Indeed, what is a romance without a good serial killer storyline thrown in for good measure? 😉 1y
