Booklist Review

Booklist just published an intelligent review of Hoppergrass.  I've quoted the whole thing in my praise section.  Check it out.


I'd love to get more comments from readers.  If you read Hoppergrass, don't be shy, drop me a comment.




New Reviews

Got some well wrought and well thought reviews over the past couple of weeks.

Valley Haggard of Style Weekly did a short, insightful piece as did Jay Strafford of the Richmond Times Dispatch.  Two very intelligent commentaries by readers have appeared on Amazon.com.

All of  the above are quoted on the Praise page of this website. Take a look.



At the May 2 signing, I spent a good deal of time hanging out with Sargeant Andy Delbridge of the Henrico County, Va. Sherriff's Office.  He turned out to be a book maniac and has posted a link to the "HOPPERGRASS website on his website,  thejails.com.   Check it out.



May 2 Signing

The signing at Barnes and Noble Short Pump, VA was a blast.  I got to meet fellow Cormac McCarthy enthusiasts, workers in schools and correctional centers for teens, a law enforcement professional, aspiring young readers and writers, old friends and other fascinating folks.  In the process, I was honored to sign more than 90 books, and have already received interesting comments from some readers from that signing.

Customers who had me sign their books ranged in age from 14 to 80+ and seemed about evenly male and female.

It was such a good day, we're going to follow up with a signing at B&N Chesterfield Town Center, VA on June 20 from 1:00 to 3:00.



USA Today Review

USA Today ran a nice paragraph about Hoppergrass (with a picture) on Thursday in their YA Roundup.  I'll post excerpts under "praise".
