Every now and then we encounter a new book that we’re so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we've created a special tag to distinguish it from the rest: TC VIB (very impressive book)! That means it’s a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books.
Our latest selection is:
The Rebellion of Miss Lucy Ann Lobdellby William Klaber
"This book is based on the real Lucy Ann Lobdell and her letters and diaries. She always planned to write a book about herself, but she was too busy crashing through all sorts of expectations and social norms. She pretty much shook the world around her and did whatever she wanted, with mixed but very interesting results. There is still a mystique to Lucy Ann (and all the other names she had over her life) that makes this book wonderfully juicy. ~ Jackie, our No.1 Book Blogger
"So dead-on it’s uncanny . . . an early contender for the year’s ‘best’ lists." –Booklist, starred review
