I'm so excited to announce that we'll be welcoming author Evan Mandery to Book Club Girl on Air on Monday, September 26th to discuss his new book, Q: A Novel!
Shortly before his wedding, the unnamed hero of this uncommon romance is visited by a man who claims to be his future self and ominously admonishes him that he must not marry the love of his life, Q. At first the protagonist doubts this stranger, but in time he becomes convinced of the authenticity of the warning and leaves his fiancée. The resulting void in his life is impossible to fill. One after the other, future selves arrive urging him to marry someone else, divorce, attend law school, leave law school, travel, join a running club, stop running, study the guitar, the cello, Proust, Buddhism, and opera, and eliminate gluten from his diet. The only constants in this madcap quest for personal improvement are his love for his New York City home and for the irresistible Q.
A unique literary talent, Evan Mandery turns the classic story of transcendent love on its head, with an ending that will melt even the darkest heart.
M.J. Rose, author of The Hypnotist calls Q “A philosophical, witty, wonderful, and altogether magical love story,” and Jessica Anya Blau, author of Drinking Closer to Home says “I’ve never read anything like it and enjoyed every minute of it!”
I have 10 copies of Q: A Novel to send out to the first 10 people who comment that they can participate in the live show on Monday, September 26th at 7pm ET. Browse Inside Q: A Novel, check out the Q Reading Group Guide, and Evan Mandery's website. Set your reminder for the show on Monday, September 26th here.
