“Who will like this book? Fans of Wally Lamb… People who love great stories… Lovers of great fiction.”
I first read Wally Lamb a few years ago on a whim. The book, I Know This Much is True, became one of my all-time favourite novels so when I had the opportunity to read an early copy of Lamb’s new novel, We Are Water back in March I (literally) ran to grab one.
I said then that the book was the best I’d read in 2013. Now, 7 months and 40 books later, I still say that. (Seriously, check my Instagram feed for proof…)
Who will like this book? Fans of Wally Lamb. Anyone who likes compelling, family dramas driven by character. People who love great stories and don’t mind getting lost in a book and realizing it’s 3am. Lovers of great fiction.
I am incredibly excited to finally get the chance to meet Wally Lamb this Fall on his Canadian tour. I’ve already got my hardcover, first-edition copy of We Are Water in hand and will have to restrain myself from gushing too much over just how wonderful of an author he is.
We Are Water is the kind of book that makes you thankful to be a reader and the best I’ve read this year.
