Tuesday, August 12th, 2013 My new short story, GALATEA, based on the story of the sculptor Pygmalion, is debuting today in the US as an e-book single from Ecco, and is already out in the UK as a Kindle single with Bloomsbury.  In the myth, Pygmalion falls in love with his own statue, and prays to the…

Exciting shortlist news! Mass Book and UK Independent Bookseller Awards

April 9th, 2013 As a child, there were two places I always felt at home, the library and the bookstore. The hours I spent in them were unreservedly joyous; for me, there was no greater treat than being surrounded by stories. As an adult, the same love remains. I can’t pass a good-looking bookstore without…

Update: India

March 8th, 2013 Cambridge is once again snow-bound, and it seemed like a good time to post some updates on the last few months which have been excitingly action-packed. As some of you may know, I had the opportunity to attend not just one, but three literary festivals in India in the past few months.…

Signed copies of The Song of Achilles–Year Round!

Back in December, some lovely readers had gotten in touch wondering about getting signed copies of The Song of Achilles for holiday gifts.  I spoke to the wonderful people at Porter Square Books, my local indie, worked out a plan for making it happen and posted the news on my website.  What I didn’t expect…

Reflections on 2012, Book Recommendations and New Essays

Monday, December 31st, 2012 On this last day of 2012, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the previous year, and to offer my thanks: to the bookstores that stocked me and the bookseIlers that championed me, and most of all to my readers–those of you who took the story of Achilles and…

General news

November 5th, 2012 My apologies for the longish absence–a lot has happened since my previous post, including finishing a new story (more on that soon), lots of book-touring and also hunkering down with the rest of the East Coast to weather Hurricane Sandy.  As it turned out, we were incredibly lucky up here in Boston,…

Shortlisted for Stonewall

Sunday, September 30th, 2012 I was incredibly honored to learn that I was shortlisted for Stonewall’s Writer of the Year.  Stonewall is an amazing organization, and I am proud to be connected in any way to the work they do.  Being named alongside Jeanette Winterson (who has always been a literary hero of mine), as…

Three favorite books

I so much enjoyed getting the chance to write this piece for BN.com on three of my favorite reads.  Always a pleasure to sing the praises of books I love!

Reflections on Book Tour

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012 As I prepare to head off on book tour tomorrow, I can’t help but remember where I was a year ago at this time.  My book—the one I had spent a third of my life working on—was a week from coming out.  I was a worried, hand-wringing mess.  Would anyone read it? …

Twitter

Indie bookstores have done an amazing job of getting the word out about book supply chain issues and the holiday shopping season. They expect challenges, plus the mail slowdown will make it worse, so order early (and often!) from your favorite bookshops. 1/
