Who doesn’t love dueling book covers? Not me! (That is, I don’t not love them–although I really could have said this more clearly, couldn’t I?) Anywho, Kaite Mediatore Stover, our “She Reads” columnist and Book Group Buzz blogger, brought the following to my attention:
Still Life, by Joy Fielding, was published by Atria in March, while Keeper of Light and Dust, by Natasha Mostert, was published by Dutton in April. So Fielding beat Mostert to store shelves–but which book wins the battle of the Booklist reviews? Writing about Keeper of Light and Dust, Allison Block calls it a “mild tale of modern romance”–but Mary Frances Wilkens calls Still Life a “heart-pounding mainstream thriller.” Winner: Still Life.
