The Writers

Meg Wolitzer

Meg Wolitzer's novels include The Interestings; The Uncoupling; The Ten-Year Nap; The Position; and The Wife. Wolitzer's short fiction has appeared in The Best American Short Stories and The Pushcart Prize.

The Interestings
Wide in scope, ambitious, and populated by complex characters who come together and apart in a changing New York City, The Interestings explores the meaning of talent; the nature of envy; the roles of class, art, money, and power; and how all of it can shift and tilt precipitously.

 

Jim Lynch

Jim Lynch is the author of three novels set in Western Washington. His first novel, The Highest Tide, won the Pacific Northwest Bookseller Award, was adapted for the stage and became an international bestseller. His second novel, Border Songs, was also adapted for the stage and won the Washington State Book Award as well as the Indie's Choice Honor Book Award. Lynch's latest book is Truth Like the Sun.

Truth Like the Sun

A classic and hugely entertaining political novel, the cat-and-mouse story of urban intrigue in Seattle both in 1962, when Seattle hosted the World's Fair, and in 2001, after its transformation in the Microsoft gold rush.
