Frank Turner Hollon
Baldwin County native Frank Turner Hollon is quietly becoming one of the
most popular writers in these parts. His Point of Fracture made several
Best-of-2006 lists, including our customers' Favorite Reads list, and
his new novel, blood and circumstance, has just been published to
outstanding early reviews.
Here's the brief synopsis: a guy kills his brother, and perhaps it's
justifiable, so they get a psychiatrist to interview the guy, and
this novel is told as a series of transcripts of these sessions.
Publishers Weekly says it "(reads) like an offbeat criminal justice
version of "My Dinner With Andre."
Booklist says "this is a chilling story full of unexpected twists and
We say it's different from nearly anything you've read before, and we
say you really ought to come meet Frank HERE AT THE STORE TOMORROW,
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3 FROM 1-3 PM. He'll be happy to sign copies of the
new book, which is a $23 hardcover, and we'll also have copies of last
year's Point of Fracture in paperback, $13.
Louisa's Bakery Opens!
The long neighborhood wait is over! Louisa's Bakery has finally opened
just around the corner from us, in that little strip mall on Woodley
Road right there next to Jubilee's parking lot. Folks, this is world
class baking, and unlike anything Montgomery has ever seen. If we were
you, we'd check out the menu on the website, and then maybe rethink our
Super Bowl eating plans, and then go by there.
Fresh bread baked on Monday, Wednesday and Friday! Pastries, desserts,
lunches! Unbelievable! Tell 'em we sent you.
