    Jill Alexander Essbaum, Sally Hepworth, David James Poissant, Harvard Book Store

    in Books

    Get ready for an hour of candid, thought-provoking book and author talk. On this episode of the Literary New England Radio Show, we feature:



    Jill Alexander Essbaum on her striking debut Hausfrau. Described as a 'modern-day Anna Karenina,' it's the story of 30-something  Anna, an American living with her husband in Switzerland, who tries to pull her life together and find happiness through a series of new experiences, including German language classes, Jungian analysis and a series of sexual affairs.
    Sally Hepworth on The Secrets of Midwives. Neva, a third-generation midwife, is pregnant and determined to hide the baby's father's identity. Yet her mother finds it impossible to let this secret rest. For Neva's grandmother, the situation sends her back 60 years to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter's--which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all.
    David James Poissant on The Heaven of Animals. Nominated for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction, named one of Amazon’s Best Short Story Collections of 2014 and recipient of numerous other awards and recognitions, this debut short story collection explores the tenuous bonds of devotion and family as each of Poissant's strikingly true-to-life characters are in some way tested by the often-brutal power of love.


    We'll also help you get your read on for next week's Boston Marathon! We talk with Rachel Cass, head buyer at the Harvard Book Store, about unforgettable running books--fiction, non-fiction and those ideal for children.

    Colin Barrett, Jonathan Odell & Susan Wilson

    in Books

    On this episode, we'll highlight and give away two novels and a short story collection written by three acclaimed authors:



    Colin Barrett on Young Skins. A multi-award-winning debut short story collection set in the fictional, rural town of Glanbeigh, Ireland--a desolate spot where buffoonery and tension simmer and erupt, and booze-sodden boredom fills the corners of every pub and nightclub.
    Jonathan Odell on Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League. Inspired by Odell's childhood in pre-Civil Rights Mississippi, two young mothers--one wealthy and white and the other poor and black--have only two things in common: the devastating loss of their children, and a deep and abiding loathing for one another. As their relationship and beliefs grow, so does an unexpected friendship.
    Susan Wilson on The Dog Who Saved Me. After his faithful canine partner is killed in the line of duty, Officer Cooper Harrison finds himself jobless, on the verge of divorce and in a self-destructive rut. Then he becomes an animal control officer back in his hometown, where he works to rescue a wounded and gun-shy yellow Lab gone feral.
