Marisa de los Santos, Mary Norris & Charles Finch on tonight’s Literary New England Radio Show

Don’t miss the hour we’ll spend tonight at 8 pm with two New York Times best-selling novelists and a Common Queen. We’ll also give away the books we feature, as we talk with:

  • Marisa de los Santos. Her newly released novel The Precious One tells the story of half-sisters Taisy and Willow, told from their
    alternating points of view. Brought together by their father, it’s a
    book about family secrets, lost love and dangerous obsession.
  • Mary Norris. A copy editor at The New Yorker for more than 30 years, her warm and humorous memoir Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen is not so much about a need for perfect grammar, but about a love for words and language.
  • Charles Finch. His stand-alone novel The Last Enchantments
    came out in paperback earlier this month. In it, a Yale grad whose work
    in politics leads to disappointment finds himself caught in a whirlwind
    of unexpected friendships, and romantic entanglements, that threaten
    his safe plans.

Three books, written by three women, that are as different and compelling as their authors. Tune to the Literary New England Radio Show at 8 pm this Monday, March 23, in for book giveaways and conversations with:

  • Lauren Oliver on Vanishing Girls. An edgy, compelling YA novel by this New York Times bestselling author about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident, and who are searching to find both themselves and each other.
  • Nina MacLaughlin on Hammer Head. A warm and inspiring memoir about Nina’s decision to quit her job sitting behind a desk at a Boston newspaper and apply for a job on Craigslist to become a carpenter’s assistant.
  • Sylvia True on The Wednesday Group. A captivating and moving debut novel about five women who share never-before-told secrets, and bond over painful truths, when they meet at a support group for partners of sex addicts.
