West of Here (Algonquin)

We're thrilled to have Jonathan Evison (All About Lulu) back to Skylight to read from and sign his highly anticipated new novel West of Here! We're big fans of this book, which has been getting great early buzz.  First printings are already selling out at some stores, but we're still stocked up on them for the event, so be sure to get your copy here!

"A big novel about the discovery and rediscovery of nature, starting over, and the sometimes piercing reverberations of history, this is a damn fine book." --Publishers Weekly

"'Epic' is yet another one of those words that's been stripped of its meaning from overuse, but no other word can properly describe this novel. I'm in awe. You will be, too." -Ron Currie, Jr., author of Everything Matters!

Jonathan Evison is the author of All About Lulu, which won the Washington State Book Award. In 2009, he was the recipient of a Richard Buckley Fellowship from the Christopher Isherwood Foundation. He lives on an island in Western Washington.

Set in the fictional town of Port Bonita, on
Washington State's rugged Pacific coast, "West of Here" is propelled by a
story that both re-creates and celebrates the American experience.
Harkening back to the work of such masters of Americana as Bret Harte,
Edna Ferber, and Larry McMurtry, "West of Here" is a bold novel by a
writer destined to become a major force in American literature.

Weakness has always been a concern for William Miller, but he is further weakened by his irrepressible crush on his new step-sister, Lulu. Once Lulu departs for college, Will attempts to find himself--discovering Western philosophy, a cruel dating world, and, ultimately, his true calling.
