It was quite a summer. All told, The Vacationers spent ten weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list. Ten weeks! That is crazy and amazing and I peeked through my fingers at it the whole time, so sure that it would vanish if I looked too closely. I feel deeply aware that selling so many books is an act of magic, of timing and luck and the right jacket and the right pub date. If you bought my book, or know someone who did, or checked it out of your local library, thank you. It boggles my mind to know that my book has been in so many hands. Thank you.
And, if you read and liked the book, I have some good news. I've just sold my next two books to Riverhead, and am at work on the first of those novels now. It's about a neighborhood, and ambition, and marriage, and music. There's a teenaged boy. There's a teenaged girl. There's trouble in many forms. I'll tell you more when there's more to tell, but expect it tentatively to be coming out in June 2016.
Ever forward! xoxoxoo
