Suzanne Berne‘s The Ghost at the Table, first published in November 06, took the media by storm. It received an “A” grade from Entertainment Weekly and rave reviews in O, The Oprah Magazine; Elle; Washington Post Book World; San Francisco Chronicle; Chicago Tribune, and tons of others.
USA Today said “Suzanne Berne’s novel is perfect reading as you head off to your family’s Thanksgiving celebration. Perfect if you like compelling characters, acerbic insights and a gimlet-eyed look at the intense bonds between siblings.”
It’s no wonder that NPR’s Diane Rehm has selected it for this month’s “Readers’ Review” Book Club choice, which will air tomorrow, November 25. Special guests Ron Charles, fiction editor at The Washington Post; Lisa Page, freelance writer who teaches creative writing at George Washington University; and Kyoko Mori, Associate professor of creative writing, George Mason University, will join Diane to talk about their reactions to The Ghost at the Table. You can check out Ron Charles’ original take in his Washington Post review. Be sure to tune in!
And come back here tomorrow for an excerpt from the book that’s sure to gear you up for the holidays!
