Join Book Club Girl of the blog www.bookclubgirl.com as she welcomes Malena Watrous to discuss her debut novel If You Follow Me. "I love, love, love If You Follow Me," says Curtis Sittenfeld, New York Times bestselling author of Prep. Beautifully wrought and deftly written, If You Follow Me tells the story of Marina, who moves to Japan to teach English shortly after her father’s tragic suicide, and finds unexpected solace with her Japanese supervisor and seemingly indifferent neighbors. If You Follow Me is at once a fish-out-of-water tale, a dark comedy of manners, and a strange kind of love story. Alive with vibrant and unforgettable characters—from an ambitious town matchmaker to a high school student-cum-rap artist wannabe with an addiction to self-tanning lotion—it guides readers over cultural bridges even as it celebrates the awkward, unlikely triumph of the human spirit.
