Book Talk & Signing with Award-Winning Author Laurie Frankel at Fiction Addiction
Award-winning author Laurie Frankel will discuss her new book, This Is How It Always Is (Flatiron, hardcover, $25.99, on sale 1/24/17), a novel about revelations, transformations, fairy tales, and family, at a book talk and signing on Tuesday, February 7th, at 6pm at Fiction Addiction.
This is how a family keeps a secret...and how that secret ends up keeping them.
This is how a family lives happily ever after...until happily ever after becomes complicated.
This is how children change...and then change the world.
This is Claude. He's five years old, the youngest of five brothers, and loves peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves wearing a dress, and dreams of being a princess.
When he grows up, Claude says, he wants to be a girl.
Rosie and Penn want Claude to be whoever Claude wants to be. They're just not sure they're ready to share that with the world. Soon the entire family is keeping Claude's secret. Until one day it explodes.
This book is about the ways this is how it always is: Change is always hard and miraculous and hard again, parenting is always a leap into the unknown with crossed fingers and full hearts, children grow but not always according to plan. And families with secrets don't get to keep them forever.
