The major motion picture based on John Grogan’s best-selling MARLEY & ME opened on Christmas Day to become the #1 movie in America and hit the $100-million mark after just its second weekend in theaters.
MARLEY & ME is a box-office blockbuster!
Great early buzz for BEHIND THE YELLOW TAPE
Jarrett Hallcox and Amy Welch’s follow-up to BODIES WE’VE BURIED comes out from Berkley Books in January and received a great early review in Publishers Weekly: “With as much suspense as any hour-long TV mystery, this should appeal to fans of CSI, its imitators, and the old-fashioned true-crime books that paved their way.”
…and I’M PERFECT YOU’RE DOOMED
Kyria Abrahams’ debut book from Touchstone is a memoir about growing up a Jehovah’s Witness, and it hits bookstores in March. Kirkus raves, “Undoubtedly the cleverest lapsed Jehovah’s Witness yet, Abrahams offers a graphic, mordant, wickedly distaff take on the first two decades of her current life. It’s a confessional talking cure, melancholy as well as funny as it chronicles unharmonious family life, a short miserable marriage, foul boyfriends, booze and pervasive naïveté. As oddly engrossing as repeated slow-motion viewings of an accident in an amusement park.”
THE LONGEST TRIP HOME debuts at #9 on the New York Times bestseller list.
John Grogan’s 2nd memoir continues to receive critical acclaim and debuts at #9 on the New York Times bestseller list. Janet Maslin of the New York Times says John Grogan writes “with deeply felt humanity and pathos” and “has a knack for framing such tales with great charm.” Frank McCourt reviews THE LONGEST TRIP HOME for The Philadelphia Inquirer and writes that Grogan’s story is, “All energy and love, passion and compassion — all leavened with a grand sense of humor.”
