John Milliken Thompson Reading & Signing

16 Oct 2013

Wednesday, October 16 at 7pm
Love and Lament, John Milliken Thompson’s second novel, is set in rural North Carolina between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of WWI. Clyde Edgerton (Walking Across Egypt) calls it “. . . a sweeping novel that gets everything right . . . it allows you to experience the life of another time, about a hundred years ago, in the soul and mind of a young woman whose passions and worries could be your own.” Thompson lives in Virginia and read from his first novel, The Reservoir, at Malaprop’s two years ago.
