Tickets now on sale for two London events in early September. Very much looking forward to discussing craft, process, and these suburban American lives all the way over in England. And to meeting #annahope! #booktour

People have been DM’ing to find out how to get a signed copy of #askagainyes and I finally have a better answer! There are now around 50 signed copies at Books & Greetings in Northvale, NJ and they’ll ship to anywhere in the United States. If you want me to inscribe a copy to someone, just call the store and leave instructions. I’ll stop by and inscribe before they mail it. #bookstagram @booksandgreetings @scribnerbooks #tonightshowsummerreads

Thank you to @theskimm for recommending #askagainyes! #Repost @theskimm with @get_repost ・・・ Paging “Little Fires Everywhere” fans. This one’s set in a 1970s town north of Manhattan, and there’s plenty of drama on the block. You’ll follow NYPD rookies as they become neighbors, and see their lives unravel—marriage, children, tragedy, and all. Get in bio. #SkimmLife

I wrote an essay about the teacher who changed my life. If you’d told that girl on the corner of 116th that she’d end up on @fallontonight for a book she’d write at her kitchen table she’d have died on the spot. LINK IN BIO #Repost @nytbooks with @get_repost ・・・ At the end of her sophomore year in college, Mary Beth Keane’s writing teacher gave her a summer reading list that changed her life. Mary Gordon, possibly Barnard’s most prominent faculty member, flagged her down as she was heading to the library and asked her the fateful question: “What are you reading this summer?” Gordon’s recommendations included Roddy Doyle, Edna O’Brien, Maeve Brennan, John McGahern, William Trevor, Grace Paley, Katherine Anne Porter. "There were more," Keane recalls, "but these are the ones I remember because these are the ones I read." As she read, something clicked: "I felt myself grow sharper, more cleareyed about what I wanted out of fiction, and what I wanted to do with my own writing." Which authors taught you to be a better writer, a more thoughtful reader? Tell us in the comments. | 🎨@molly.fairhurst

I had the privilege of reading this in draft form, and now as an ARC. Forthcoming in January of 2020. Put it on your TBR lists, pre-order, whatever you do get it as soon as you can. About a young boy and his mother fleeing Mexico for the U.S., anyone with a pulse will be hooked from the very first sentence. #fridayreads #bookstagram

I opened my copy of this Sunday’s New York Times Book Review to find this beauty of an ad. As one of my characters says late in the book, I’ve been lucky. Thank you @scribnerbooks ❤️ #bookstagram #askagainyes

Maureen Corrigan, one of my favorite reviewers, reviews ASK AGAIN, YES on today’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. and it’s good! (Or I wouldn’t be posting it, duh) I’m very, very grateful for such a careful, considered take on these characters.

Back in March, J.Jill partnered with @oprahmagazine for their #InspiredWomen campaign, and chose me to be one of the writers. That’s me, sitting on a jumbo page from #askagainyes. The campaign has just been released in their summer catalogue and online. It was a fun/weird/exhausting/thrilling day, and I’m so grateful to have been included. Mostly, I learned 1) not even a team of professional stylists can keep this hair wavy 2) I should try to always wear sleeves.

Thank you @oprahmagazine for featuring Ask Again, Yes in your Women of Summer issue. That’s a real R.E.M. ticket stub I’ve been saving since 1995. Honored to be keeping company with so many women I admire. #askagainyes #summerreading #inspiredwomen #oprahwinfrey #omagazine

A HUGE thank you to @booksandbooks for such a great event tonight. We recorded an episode of #theliterarylife with Mitchell Kaplan, I had my first cortadito, and then I talked with readers. I’ve been to a lot of bookstores but this one is magical. #iheartradio #bookstagram #summerreading #askagainyes
