Emily Gray Tedrowe

Emily ray TedroweWith pleasure, I welcome Emily Gray Tedrowe, author of Commuters. Emily's novel traces a year in the life of two families thrown together by the sudden marriage of their oldest members. Commuters is a tale of love, family dynamics, money, and surprising alliances. And food! Emily writes about her character Avery's obsession with food, how it  guides his some of his decisions, and how memorable meals can define one's life.

Teaser Tuesdays June 15: Great House by Nicole Krauss

I've been on vacation so my blog has been on vacation, too! Corolla, NC -- great weather and a good time.

Back to the book business. BEA(BookExpoAmerica) has afforded me some great galleys to look over. Amy from W. W. Norton gave me one that I'm excited to read -- Great House by Nicole Krauss. Krauss' previous novel, The History of Love, is one of my favorite books. Great story and lots of reading group topics to discuss.
