Happy #BookBday (1/31/17 Edition)

Today we wish a very happy #BookBday to:

4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster
A February 2017 Indie Next pick and one of Kirkus Reviews’s Most Anticipated Books of 2017 with three starred reviews! “Auster’s first novel in seven years is nothing if not ambitious: a four-part invention, more than 800 pages, that follows the life (or lives) of Archie Ferguson. With this novel, Auster reminds us that not just life, but also narrative is always conditional, that it only appears inevitable after the fact.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

I LIKED MY LIFE by Abby Fabiaschi
Two starred reviews! An engrossing debut about a devoted mother who commits suicide, leaving her husband and teenage daughter to redefine their understanding of family, while she meddles from beyond the grave. “Warm and hopeful, this marvelous debut stands next to novels from Catherine McKenzie and Carolyn Parkhurst in taking the reader on the emotional rides that define marriage and family.” — Booklist, starred review

SHOES FOR ANTHONY by Emma Kennedy
Set in a small Welsh coal-mining town, World War II comes too close to home for a hardscrabble young boy in this moving and unforgettable novel. “A vividly evoked, keenly detailed coming-of-age story.” — Kirkus Reviews
