Bonnie Jo CampbellHad I Known: A Memoir of Survival

Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of three previous books of fiction including American Salvage, a National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle Award finalist, reads from and discusses her new novel Mothers, Tell Your Daughters. Named by the Guardian as one of our top ten writers of rural noir, Campbell is a keen observer of life and trouble in rural America, and her working-class protagonists can be at once vulnerable, wise, cruel, and funny. The strong but flawed women of Mothers, Tell Your Daughters must negotiate a sexually charged atmosphere as they love, honor, and betray one another against the backdrop of all the men in their world.

($25.95) W.W. Norton ISBN # 9780393248456. You can visit Bonnie Jo Campbell‘s official web site as well.
