Run, the acclaimed and bestselling new book by Ann Patchett, whose Bel Canto and Magician's Assistant have been top reading group choices for years is now in paperback! In Run, Patchett tells the story of the Doyle family, headed by Bernard Doyle, a former mayor of Boston. He has been raising their adopted sons Teddy and Tip Doyle on his own since the death of wife years earlier and hoping that they too will enter a life of politics, a dream that neither of the boys shares. But when an argument in a blinding New England snowstorm inadvertently causes an accident that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard cares about is his ability to keep his children—all his children—safe. You can browse inside Run here and be sure to check out the P.S. section exclusive to the paperback, in which Patchett talks about writing the book while the presidential election was gearing up and how that effected her thinking of setting and time.
