UK Book Club Picks The Crying Tree

Thanks to our good friends at Reading Local, we learned the exciting news today that Oregon author Naseem Rakha's debut novel, The Crying Tree, has just been selected as one of the eight books for this year's Richard and Judy's Book Club. Richard and Judy run a UK reading series that's sort of the UK equivalent of Oprah's Selections. Congratulations, Naseem -- that's spectacular news!

Naseem read from her novel at Broadway Books recently, and we still have a few signed copies left of her book, which recently came out in paperback. You can see a brief video of Naseem reading at Broadway Books at our website. And you can read our blog posting about her novel here. The author's website can be found here.

Here are the other seven books selected by Richard and Judy (I've indicated which ones are available now or shortly in this country):
  • Sister, Rosamund Lupton (will pub 4/5/11)
  • The Snowman, Jo Nesbo
  • Operation Mincemeat, Ben Macintyre (available now in hardcover)
  • Waiting for Columbus, Thomas Trofimuk (paperback pubs Oct 5)
  • A Place of Secrets, Rachel Hore
  • No & Me, Delphine de Vigan
  • The Wilding, Maria McCann
