"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pick:
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Release date: September 3, 2013
A warm, funny, and profoundly original novel about a family dealing with disaster, from a rising literary star
it takes is a quarter to change pediatric psychiatrist Dr. Owen
Lerner’s life. When the coin he’s feeding into a parking meter is struck
by lightning, Lerner survives, except that now all he wants to do is
barbecue. What will happen to his patients, who rely on him to make
sense of their world? More important, what will happen to his family?
The bolt of lightning that lifts Lerner into the air sends the entire
Lerner clan into free fall. Mary Kay Zuravleff depicts family-on-family
pain with generosity and devastating humor as she explores how much we
are each allowed to change within a family—and without. Man Alive!
captures Owen and Toni Lerner and their nearly grown children so
vividly you’ll be looking over your shoulder to make sure the author
hasn’t been watching your own family in action.

Sounds cute and the cover made me chuckle!ReplyDelete
That cover cracks me up. Almost worth wrapping it with my hubby's Father's Day gift even though I know he wouldn't read it!ReplyDelete
It sounds like it will be a witty but heartwarming story. :-)ReplyDelete
I love that cover. That alone would make me pick up the book and read further. It might even get my husband (a non-reader) to look at the book!ReplyDelete
I agree, unique is a good word and it sounds interesting!ReplyDelete
This sounds really unique! I hope you get an early copy of this one.ReplyDelete
