Lisa Gornick joins the Nothing is Cancelled Virtual Book Tour with this wonderful post about THE PEACOCK FEAST

Dear Caroline Fans—and aren’t we all?
The paperback of my 4th novel, THE PEACOCK FEAST, was published March 10th.

The book started with a question: What the hell is going on in this photograph?


You can read about THE PEACOCK FEAST HERE, and see the lovely praise from Christina Baker Kline, Rebecca Makkai, Joan Silber, and Meg Wolitzer.

As for my little paperback book tour, I made it as far as Emma Snyder’s wondrously creative The Ivy Bookshop in Baltimore, where I was interviewed by writer & reviewer extraordinaire Marion Winik, author of THE BIG BOOK OF THE DEAD, before I had to cancel all other events. Shout-outs to the bookstores and writers who had so generously prepared for my visits:

Kramerbooks in DC, where I was to be in conversation with Angie Kim, whose debut smash-hit MIRACLE CREEK comes out in paperback next month.

Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill, where I was slated to be interviewed by Krista Bremer, author of a magnificent memoir, A TENDER STRUGGLE.

Charis Books & More in Atlanta, who were co-hosting with the Georgia Center for the Book my conversation with Susan Rebecca White, author of the fantastic WE ARE ALL GOOD PEOPLE HERE, also just out in paperback.
Parnassus Bookstore, owned by literary luminary Ann Patchett, where I was looking forward to being interviewed by Nashville’s book-maven, Jennifer Puryear, creator of BACON ON THE BOOKSHELF.

Thank you, dear Caroline—and wishing all a safe journey through the coming months…
