At the Thurber Awards for American Humor two years ago, John Kenney's speech was so unbelievably hilarious that I bought this book immediately and read it. It did not disappoint. And nor did John disappoint as host last night—such a fricken funny human being.

Also, big congrats to Harrison Scott Key who won last night's prize!!

"Sometimes I dream of my escape. In my sleep I conjure a way out, another life waiting for me beyond this one. Sometimes I am climbing, or driving, or falling through a void with no clear place to land. But most often I am running, sprinting through the field and into the trees, my clip too fast for you to catch me."

The international bestselling psychological suspense finally comes to the U.S.! Read it.

YOU GUYS. Years That Followed is like the entire Ferrante series condensed into one book. And I won't lie to you–I liked this better. It's about the lives of 2 women, spanning decades in Greece, Ireland, and Spain—love, family, revenge, SO DAMN GOOD.

TouchstoneBooks Had to put this under My Brilliant Friend because Years That Followed apparently isn't in the Litsy system yet and you can't post without a book. But appropriate because FERRANTE FANS WILL LOVE 😍 4y
LitHousewife I do need to read Ferrante, but I want to add this to my TBR, too. Saved a screenshot to my phone to remind to keep looking for it. 4y
TouchstoneBooks @LitHousewife you are too kind but GIRL I'll just send ya an ARC 😉 DM me your addy 4y

TouchstoneBooks How did you do that?!?!?! I searched by title, author, omg are you magic.... 4y
LitHousewife @TouchstoneBooks I'll do that through Twitter, right? I don't think Litsy has that nice feature yet. 🙃 4y
Simona @TouchstoneBooks Why do you like this more? I'm curious, because I don't like to much Neapolitan novels. 4y
SarahRotenberry Me too @Simona. I felt like I was the only on who struggled through Ferrante. I loved the idea but the execution for me was off 😞. Hope to read this one soon @TouchstoneBooks 4y
SusanInTiburon @TouchstoneBooks hahahaha - stubborn maybe? It sounds so good. Thanks for posting about it. 4y
Miznanner @SarahRotenberry I felt the same way! Had a really difficult time even finishing. Loved the idea but just kept getting bogged down. I will give this one a try when it come out-- sounds perfect! Thanks for posting 4y

Donna_sBookMinute @Craftylady an ARC is an Advanced Review Copy. Publishers send them to readers who request them in order to have reviews available before the release date. There are, usually, guidelines for making requests on the publisher's website. 4y

golightly Oh, me please! 🙋 I went to India when I was young, I'm still always looking for ways to go back, even just through words! 4y
books_cats_art @Alyss741 it's an Advanced Reader Copy.... It is provided to certain groups of people (booksellers, readers, librarians, etc) prior to publication and often is a more "rough" copy in that it may have a different binding and may be slightly different than the final copy with typos and such. 4y
