Jill at Breaking the Spine hosts Waiting on Wednesday, which encourages you to highlight a not-yet-released book you cannot wait to read. My pick this week is My Wife's Affair by Nancy Woodruff.
I first read about My Wife's Affair in Publisher's Weekly. I tend to read only the first and last sentence of their reviews because I don't like to know too much. Here's the first sentence:
"Woodruff (Someone Else's Child) leaves not a dry eye in the house in this gripping ode to theater and the love it can command--and crush."And the last:
"It's brutal and lovely."Sold. The gorgeous cover seems to complement the review perfectly.
My Wife's Affair is also from the fabulous Amy Einhorn imprint. Beth Fish Reads is hosting a perpetual Amy Einhorn reading challenge to read every book this imprint publishes.
My Wife's Affair will be published April 15, 2010. You can preorder it in hardcover or Kindle format from Amazon.com. Can't wait? Try Ms. Woodruff's first novel, Someone Else's Child.
