Most Northwest booksellers have already seen and loved Little Century, the debut novel by McMinnville, OR resident and Linfield professor Anna Keesey. Cathy Langer, the lead buyer at the Tattered Cover Book Store in Denver, CO, has posted her review of Little Century, which pretty much assures the book of a huge national audience. Cathy says: “It’s happening again. I reread the last few pages of Anna Keesey’s luminous novel Little Century and I’m weeping at the beauty of the language and the sweet sad happy heart wrenching end. This happens to me rarely, almost never, but it occurs when characters are so vivid that I despair at saying goodbye.”
Congratulations, Anna! And many happy returns of the day! Look for an interview with Anna on NWBL later this week.
