Waiting on Wednesday: Till You Hear From Me by Pearl Cleage


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to highlight an upcoming you can't wait to read.

Till You Hear from Me: A Novel
My pick this week is the latest novel by my absolute favorite author, Pearl Cleage. I couldn't locate a description for Till You Hear From Me, and I'm not sure I want to. I first fell in love with Pearl Cleage when I saw Blues for an Alabama Sky at the Alliance Theater in the mid-1990's. I was absolutely blown away. When her first novel, What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day, came out, she became not only my favorite playwright but my favorite novelist. When Oprah chose it for her book club, I was thrilled. I will read anything--plays, prose, nonfiction--Ms. Cleage writes. When she would come dine at the restaurant I worked at in Atlanta, I could never find the words to tell her how much her work means to me.

Random House will release Till You Hear From Me on April 20, 2010. You can pre-order it from Amazon now.
