PERFECT BOOK CLUB READING: With its funny, relatable family and tough heroines who make hard choices and big mistakes, this novel is just right for book club discussions. Mothers will relate to Lillian Blaire and her struggle to balance motherhood and professional ambitions, and anyone with adult siblings will see themselves in Ruth, George, and Lizzie and their interpersonal drama.
ADULT SIBLINGS BEHAVING BADLY is a perennial reader favorite, especially in paperback as seen from the successes of The Nest and The Weird Sisters.
WELL-BALANCED HUMOR AND TRAGEDY: While a mysterious tragic accident informs the Blaire siblings’ past, their relationships and personal lives are treated with such warmth and humor that readers can’t help but be attracted to them, drama and all.
ACCLAIMED AUTHOR: Elisabeth Hyde made a name for herself with The Abortionist’s Daughter, which was published by Knopf and grossed over 70k in combined hardcover and paperback sales. She has received praise from all the heavy hitters, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR, People, the Boston Globe, Entertainment Weekly, etc.
NEW PACKAGE IN PAPERBACK: We’re giving Hyde a full paperback makeover, emphasizing the elements of fun family drama and warmth that inform the novel and give it such wide commercial appeal. This new look will speak to a wider audience, capturing old and new readers alike.
“A book full of huge-hearted mistake makers that you’ll want to call your own—Go Ask Fannie is a rousing reminder that the only way to truly forgive another person is to first forgive yourself.”—Courtney Maum, author of Touch and I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You
“Wonderful characters, a gorgeous sense of time and place, and elegant storytelling make Go Ask Fannie an utter delight. The members of this loving, raging, totally compelling family may not like one another all the time, but I adored them all from the first page. Elisabeth Hyde has written a funny, joyous novel, heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once and in the very best ways.”—Laurie Frankel, author of This Is How It Always Is
