…author Karen Siplin gently draws you in to a cocktail of mystery, romance, and thriller with her spare, powerful style of writing. I liked the way Siplin keeps certain secrets from readers as we get to know Jimi and Caleb, and I liked the way even the most peripheral characters mean something. This is one of those books you share with friends; it’s a quick read and I think you’ll love it. This weekend, pour yourself into a comfortable chair, and give this novel a shot. Once you start “Whiskey Road”, it’s going to be hard not to finish it in one big gulp.
I haven’t listened to the audio clip yet. Like most people, listening to my own voice makes me cringe! Check it out and let us know what you think.
Writer Christina Alex has a piece about me and Whiskey Road in the June 3rd issue of New York Resident entitled “Race and Reading” (on page 12). It’s a pretty cool link, but may take a while to load if you have a slow computer.
