Making this welcome return to Seattle and Elliott Bay is much-praised fiction writer A.M. Homes. Author of such works as Music for Torching, The Safety of Objects, Jack, and Things You Should Know, she is here with her new novel, This Book Will Save Your Life (Viking). "What's a lonely rich guy to do when he is felled by severe and inexplicable pain and a sinkhole threatens to swallow his pricey L.A. home? Let go...Homes is always riveting but this juggernaut hits a higher mark with its aerodynamic prose, finely calibrated humor, and spiky characters, each a master of antic extemporizing and improbable spiritual evolution...Homes orchestrates a midlife crisis that transforms a money-counting neurotic into an unlikely superhero in a novel of cinematic pizzazz that revitalizes our understanding of love and goodness." - Donna Seaman, Booklist.
