april and oliverThe Manic Mommies Book Club selection for January is April & Oliver by Tess Callahan. From Publisher’s Weekly: “In this memorable debut, Callahan offers a uniquely funereal love story that focuses on a stagnant friendship-turned-untenable romance between unlikely life-long friends. To deal with the death of her immediate family, as well as the scars of childhood abuse, April assumes the role of the jaded wild child; Oliver, her once-inseparable childhood companion, has become her polar opposite, an engaged law student poised for success. Estranged during Oliver’s college years, the two reconnect with troubling results.”

Our fabulous book club hostess Mari has secured 24 books to giveaway to Manic Mommies listeners. To enter the drawing, e-mail Mari directly: Mari DOT Partyka AT gmail DOT com.

The discussion will author Tess Callahan will be held on January 20 at 7pm Central via TalkShoe.com. To read a Q&A with the author, visit Mari’s book club blog. This looks like a good one. I’m adding it to my must read list.
