Amy and George, a wise new novel by Ann McLaughlin

Amy & George is the latest novel by my dear friend Ann McLaughlin, who I admire more than I can say. If you're anywhere near Washington DC this Sunday September 22, 2013, don't miss her reading at Politics & Prose at 1 pm.

Here's what I said about it qua blurb:

Once again, with charm and heart, McLaughlin brings to life a tumultuous period of U.S. history as she probes and delves into a father-daughter relationship that is sometimes a seesaw, sometimes a dance. This is a wise novel.

Oh, and isn't this a ka-pow of a cover? Covers are so crucial! (Ask me about the cover for the Spanish edition of my short stories and you'll know I don't use Botox.) Seriously, this is one of the best covers I've seen, perfectly elegant and perfect for the narrative itself.
