On Monday, August 5, the Today Show named the Adam Haslett short story collection You Are Not a Stranger Here (Doubleday) as the latest pick of its "Today's Book Club." The title, selected for the club by author Jonathan Franzen, was a July/August Book Sense 76 selection.
This is just the latest Book Sense selection to be chosen by either the Today Show or Good Morning America for their on-air book clubs. Other Book Sense picks have included William Morrow's Enemy Women by Paulette Jiles (GMA), Knopf's The Dive From Clausen's Pier by Ann Packer (GMA), and Knopf's The Emperor of Ocean Park by Stephen L. Carter (Today).
You Are Not a Stranger Here was nominated for the Book Sense 76 by Anne Whalen of Brookline Booksmith in Brookline, Massachusetts. To read Whalen's interview with Adam Haslett, click here.
