When Accidents of Marriage was first released in hardcover, we featured Randy on the Oct. 27, 2014 episode of the Literary New England Radio Show. Listen to that show here in the Literary New England Radio Show archives, which in addition to Randy features interviews with Gregory Maguire on Egg & Spoon, Laird Hunt on Neverhome and Anne Girard on Madame Picasso.
Those, like Randy, who live in the Boston area can see her in person tomorrow night. At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 10, she and E.B. Moore, author of the novel An Unseemly Wife, will appear at Author’s Night at Stellina Restaurant, 47 Main St., Watertown, Mass.
A finalist for the Massachusetts Book Award, Randy is the author of three novels, including The Comfort of Lies and The Murderer’s Daughters. Accidents of Marriage received a starred review from Kirkus and was a People weekly pick, among other recognitions. In it, “Meyers deftly deploys a large cast of major and minor characters in telling this complex story,” wrote the Boston Globe. “Her painstaking description of both emotional abuse and brain injury are impressive. Accidents of Marriage isn’t for anyone who insists on happy endings, but it rewards readers in deeply satisfying ways.”
Good luck to all who enter our giveaway, and congratulations Randy! Hope you enjoy Accidents of Marriage‘s paperback rebirth today!
