While I can’t be certain this isn’t one of Marc Schuster‘s April Fools jokes, electronic versions of his second novel, The Grievers, went on sale April 1st. If you’re not familiar with Marc’s writing, then you’re missing out—buy his book, or at least check out his short fiction, most of which can be read for free online (he can call you cheap later). Marc’s a fantastic writer, and he was kind enough to sit down with me for a two-part interview about The Grievers and writing in general a few months ago (read part 1 and part 2).
I had an opportunity to read an advanced copy of The Grievers, and it was one of the funniest and most poignant books I read in 2012—and yes, I did read more than one book last year. I highly recommend it. And for those of you who have given up reading for Lent or other moral reasons, the Kindle version will apparently read itself to you—gotta love modern technology!—so you have no excuse.
