Author Jami Attenberg is not only local and a staff favorite, but an occasional bookseller for us as well, and we're delighted to be the source for signed copies of her books!
Her newest novel, The Middlesteins, has garnered rave reviews from everyone who has read it, including Jonathan Franzen: "The Middlesteins had me from its very first pages, but it wasn't until its final pages that I fully appreciated the range of Attenberg's sympathy and the artistry of her storytelling."
Signed copies of The Middlesteins are available immediately! Personalized copies are possible, but may take longer to process depending on the author's availability. Books shipped via UPS Ground and USPS Priority Mail can be expected 2-3 business days after shipping; books shipped via media mail cannot be guaranteed by a certain date but tend to arrive 1-2 weeks after shipping, often sooner. Please email us at brooklyn at wordbookstores dot com if you would like your book shipped internationally.
For more than thirty years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life together in the suburbs of Chicago. But now things are splintering apart, for one reason, it seems: Edie's enormous girth. She's obsessed with food--thinking about it, eating it--and if she doesn't stop, she won't have much longer to live.
