AOT #499: Jonathan Evison Podcasts This is Your Life, Harriet Chance!
Jonathan Evison, whose previous works include the award-winning novels All About Lulu, West of Here, and The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving (currently in development for a film starring Paul Rudd), reads from and discusses his new novel This is Your Life, Harriet Chance!, an irresistible, inventive novel, filled with racing, breathless, and vibrant prose. “An insightful, richly entertaining look at a woman who, very late in the game, finds that life remains full of surprises . . . Evison writes humanely and with good humor of his characters, who, like the rest of us, muddle through, too often without giving ourselves much of a break. A lovely, forgiving character study that’s a pleasure to read.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review
