4th August
written by Steph

Tony and I have two reviews in the August issue of BookPage that might be of some interest to you, fair readers. My review of Rosecrans Baldwin’s debut novel You Lost Me There is in the debut fiction section, and can be read here. The novel centers on an Alzheimer researcher who struggles with the loss of his wife. It was a really interesting read for me, because I do have a bit of background in memory research, and it’s a topic I always enjoy exploring in fiction. For those familiar with The Morning News, Baldwin’s novel is what you might expect: quirky and intellectual. For those of you who want more “behind the book” info, I also did a quick Q&A with Baldwin for the web about his debut novel, which you can read here.

Finally, Tony reviews the debut novel from the mastermind behind the television hit Heroes, Tim Kring. Shift is cowritten by Kring and Dale Peck, and takes readers on a wild romp through the ‘60s, and will delight your inner conspiracy theorist. If you’ve been holding your breath for a book that tackles JFK and LSD in the same place, look no further! Except to read Tony’s review, which you can do so here. Enjoy!
